Here is more information from Jan Barrett about Vermont Sheldons:

I found this interesting paper while searching for information on my Vermont Sheldons (Gideon moved there in about 1774, and his son, Samuel, was in VT until about 1795 when he went to Canada.)

Carving out a sense of place: The making of the Marble Valley and the Marble City of Vermont (unh.edu)

One of Gideon’s sons, Jeremiah, opened the first marble quarry in Pittsford, VT in 1795. There are few mentions of him in the article, but there’s a lot on Charles Sheldon. I think it may be this Charles Sheldon: Charles Sheldon b. 24 Jul 1813 Rutland County, Vermont, USA: Sheldon Family History (sheldongenealogy.org)
