How might a person born in Vermont in 1797 also be born in New Hampshire?

Vermont was considered a part of New Hampshire for many years. At one time, western Vermont was considered part of New York!

From 1778-84, Hanover and a number of towns in Grafton County seceeded from New Hampshire. They flirted briefly with the idea of forming a separate state together with a group of Vermont towns--"New Connecticut" would have been the name and Dresden, the corner of Hanover where Dartmouth is located, would have become the capital. However, they settled on union with Vermont as a more practical way in which to assure association with their friends across the river. They were admitted to the state of Vermont in 1778. After much conflict, they finally dissolved ties with Vermont, and, in 1784, joined the New Hampshire state legislature.

(From the history of Hanover NH hanovernh.org)

I started studying my genealogy several years ago, and the 1880 census records are very helpful. I assume that you have a known ancestor whose father (or mother) was born in Vermont. Just remember the census taker did not always get things right. He may have questioned someone else living in the household, such as a child or boarder or even a neighbor. I often come across information that contradicts information from another source. Do you have more than source that states the ancestor was born in Vermont?

Is there a train from Boston to Meredith NH?

Unfortunately, there is not Amtrak service in New Hampshire except along the Atlantic Coast. White River Junction, VT is the closest train station to Meredith. You would have to take the Lake Shore Limited from Boston to Springfield and change to the Vermonter to White River Junction.

Your best bet is probably taking the Concord Coach from Logan Airport or the South Station to Meredith. There are two buses a day each way.

Who was Madame Sherri in Chesterfield NH?

Madame Antoinette Sherri summered in Chesterfield, New Hampshire for thirty years beginning in the late 1920’s. Her lifestyle was unlike anything the local residents of Brattleboro had seen before, and she soon became an exotic and mysterious figure in the region. Antoinette De Lilas was a music hall singer in Paris when she married Andre Riela a/k/a/ Antony Maculusco, a silent film actor and theatrical producer. A newspaper article appeared in the New York World at the time reporting Andre Riela as the son of an Italian Diplomat who, along with Andre’s mother and sister, was living in New York City at the time. The article further stated that the newlyweds arrived in New York City aboard the SS Oceanic in 1911 and received a chilly reception from the groom’s parents. This appears to have been a publicity stunt. Shortly thereafter, the couple changed their name to Sherri. Using this newly acquired name, the couple became theatrical costume designers and opened a shop in New York City’s theater district. Antoinette (Madame) Sherri first came to Chesterfield during the prohibition era to visit her friend Jack Henderson, a Broadway actor who summered and partied here. Andre had passed away in 1924. Madame Sherri, in her 50’s by this time, became fond of Chesterfield and bought a farm on the Gulf Road, as a place to build her summer home. Her entourage of beautiful young girls and handsome young men from New York, her 1927 cream colored Packard touring car and the seemingly endless supply of money fascinated the local residents. Her foreign accent, extravagant dress and the stone “castle” that she had built added to the growing legend. Madame Sherri passed away at the Maple Rest Nursing Home in Brattleboro in October of 1965. Oddly, the sale of the site of the “castle” -which had burned some years earlier - and her farmhouse, was completed on the day of her death. It was later learned that some of Madame Sherri’s money actually came to her from Charles LeMaire, the Hollywood film costume designer. The Sherris had befriended LeMaire when he first arrived in New York. It was Andre and Antoinette who had taught him costume design.
