Marriage 1775-01-01 Ferrisburg, Addison Co, VT Marriage of Gage, Walter and Roberts, Sally 1
Event Note

The Gage's came to Danby, VT about 1770.


The original genealogy of the Gage's states:
"Married about New Years Day 1775 Phebe ___
Married 1792 Sallie Roberts of Ferrisburg, Vt. lived in Ferrisburg, Danby, and Vergennes, Vt."
===> 2 wives!

The Gage's moved to the area that became VT in the late 1750's when Walter was very young, therefore he probably married Phebe in Addison Co, VT. Vermont Republic became independent from Quebec, NH, & NY in 1777. In 1775, the area (bottom of Lake Champlain) was called Charlotte County, New York.

Vermont Vital Records has Chase Gage s/o Walter Gage and Phebe Roberts which could be confused with Sallie Roberts OR perhaps Phebe and Sallie were related Roberts. Note children of Sallie named their children Phebe, so could be Sallie's sister. Most trees now claim "Sallie (Phebe) Roberts" was his only wife, but she would be very unlikely to have children past 50 years old.
The original death record from Vermont, Town Clerk, Vital & Town Records (familysearch.org) says only Chase's parents were Walter & Phebe.

Additional children of Walter, but unknown birthdates, so don't know which family:
Jemima (one source said b. 24 Jun 1804 --> unlikely because she is not included with minors Benj & Hannah in Walter's estate papers )
Phebe (b.1783)
Hannah (b. 1807)
Salome (b.1788? or daughter-in-law?)

==> No DNA match to descendants of the Roberts who are not also descendants of Walter Gage. Phebe is probably NOT a Roberts.
