Misc. Notes:

All excerpts taken from the Orleans County Monitor:

- 27 April 1874Peter LaPete chopped one of his great toes off last Thursday.  It was purely accidental and no blame is attached to him.

- 31 October 1881 - R.S. Twombly has sold 75 acres off his Westmore farm to Pete LaPete for $1325.  LaPete has sold his land in district No. 2 to C.J. Ufford.

- 24 December 1883S.G. Bean once in a while makes a mistake in seizing smuggled horses.  He came here recently and picked up one belonging to Pete LaPete which never saw Canada.  LaPete bought one in Canada, but it was taken sick and quarantined north of forty-five, and ‘Sile’ didn’t hear that part of the story.

- 19 November 1888 – Westmore – Peter LaPete has put up a very good house on his place in the west part of the town.

- 3 June 1889 – Barton – Pete LaPete is painting his big house this spring.

- 16 September 1889Peter LaPete lost a son of about fifteen years of age of diphtheria on Saturday.  The family has had diphtheria, and this boy was hoped to be out of danger, when he rapidly sank and died.  The family were at Mr. Dilley’s during their sickness, and probably took the disease there.

- 6 October 1890 – There was a county fair.  Mention made of some very good draft animals owned by Pete LaPete of Barton, and Flavia Lapete’s draft horse team which managed to drag a 3000 pound load a short distance.

- 3 November 1890Pete Lapete recently thrashed for A. Tripp 228 bushels of oats, and 38 bushels of barley twice through the machine, in one day.

- 31 October 1892Pete LaPete will sell 5 colts, 13 cows, and 60 tons of hay at auction next Saturday, at 1 o’clock p.m.

- 6 February 1899Mrs. Peter Cota, died last Wednesday.  Mrs. Cota had been in poor health for some time and was treated at a hospital last fall, but did not receive the benefit which it was hoped she might, and had gradually failed since then.  She was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Peter LaPete.

- 28 January 1901A.P. Bean has sold his woodland lot near Little Pond to Pete LaPete of Barton.

- 29 April 1901 - Peter Lapete had his leg broken Wednesday night by being kicked by a vicious cow.  C.C. Grow and a physician who were passing at the time were called in and found Mr. Lapete in the stable with the injured limb.  They carried him to his house where the physician set the limb and he is apparently doing well.  Peter works for a living and dislikes to be obliged to take an enforced vacation during spring's work.

- 10 June 1901 Peter Lapete was in the village last Friday for the first time since breaking his leg.

- 18 Nov 1901 Peter Lapete has exchanged farms with Benjamin Mossman.  He will move on to the farm which Mr. Mossman owned near Thomas Murray’s as he wants more land than there is in his river farm.

- 24 June 1907Miss Josephine Lapete and Charles Leonard, both of Barton, were married this morning by Rev. J.E. Leblanc.
