>Subject: Query for CRVT list

>For a research project on the history of herbalism in Vermont, I'm looking 
>for information about herbalists, midwives, root doctors and Indian 
>doctors who either lived or practiced in Vermont from the 17th century to 
>mid-20th century. Of particular interest: what they were known for, where 
>and when they were practicing, their background, plants they used, role in 
>their communities, sources for more info.
>
>Another interest is folk remedies of plant origin used by or attributed to 
>Vermonters, immigrants or Native Americans in our area, past or present. 
>Also patent medicines for people or animals produced or widely used in Vermont.
>
>Molly Ocket was a well known healer in northern Vermont, New Hampshire and 
>Maine. Does anyone know specific plants or remedies she used, or details 
>about her healing methods?
>
>Adele Dawson was another Vermont herbalist. If anyone has clues about how 
>she learned about herbs, or stories about her as an herbalist, I would 
>love to talk to you.
>
>If you have more than you want to write down, please know that I would be 
>more than glad to call you or come for a visit. Just send me an email at 
><[log in to unmask]> with information on how to best contact you. Names of 
>people to contact who may not get email would also be appreciated.

>Many thanks,
