Notice that in Franklin County, Vermont in 1910 there are only 5 Native People's indicated. None in 1920. Only 3 in 1930. None in 1940 and 1950. One Indian in 1960, 9 Indians in 1970. Ten years later....in the 1980 Federal Census(after the group of people INCORPORATE in 1976 as the St. Francis/ Sokoki Abenaki - Abenaki Selp Help Association) all of a sudden in Franklin County, Vermont.....there are 422 alleged and reinvented "Abenaki Indians." In 1990, there are 584 self-identifying "Indians."
In other Vermont Counties, there is also the same dynamic of a seemingly increase in self-identifying "Indians" such as in Chittenden County, VT per the 1950-1960-1970-1980-1990 Federal Census. Notice that Arthur "Bill" William Seymore (including the Phillips Family) and other such families, etc come geographically FROM the Burlington, Chittenden County, Vermont area, BEFORE 1990.
