As with other Pitre descendants who crossed the border from French-speaking Canada into English-speaking New England, the families below translated into various versions of the Pitre surname or dit names.  The group associated with Orleans County are descended from Joseph Pitre & Marie Antoinette Lupien and developed from Pitre to Lepitre and Lapete or La Pete.  The excerpts below may not constitute all the Vermont Pitres, only the ones I've located thus far.
