I just stumbled across your Averill genealogy on the Our Folk website. I thought you might be interested to know that there are still descendants of the Averills and Phippens in Westminster, Vermont; and a house built by John and Mary (Phippen) Averill's son Asa is still standing on the main street.
 
When I was a child I grew up in an apple orchard started by my greatgrandfather, George Dascomb, and one area of the orchard was called "The Phippen Lot". George was a descendant of the Averills and Phippens through his mother. The orchard hasn't been worked in over 40 years, and is mainly residential now, but my dad told me that when it was a working orchard there were old cellar holes down in the Phippen lot.
 
It's odd, I believe John and Mary Averill had around 70 plus grandchildren, but as far as I can tell, my sisters and brother and I are the only descendants still living in the area. Our name has changed many times, as we came down through the female lines.

In 1755 John Perry, Philip Alexander and John Averill were the first settlers of Putney, Vermont.

 
In 1751 John Averill, wife, and son Asa removed with others from Northfield, Massachussetts, to Westminster.
 
(New England Families: Genealogical and Memorial, Vol. 4 page 1700)



 
Another "summer person" to come to Westminster was Vermont born Texas lumber king George A. Dascomb, who realized his dream of starting an orchard in Vermont by organizing the Connecticut Valley Orchard in Westminster in 1911. The approximately twenty acre orchard was providing apples to New York City and all of New England by the 1920's.

 
It contributed significantly to the 16.3 acres of orchard and approximately 8,000 apple trees in the town at the time. Though Dascomb's orchard did not lie within the district, Dascomb had an important influence on the district through his generous donations to the town, the most notable of which was the Westminster Institute, #19, in 1923.

Asa - Listed in 1771 Census of Westminster, Cumberland Co., New York

41. Averill - Whittle House; c.1795.

 
This house is one of the most architecturally significant, best preserved, and perhaps oldest house in the district.
 
A tradition recorded as early as the 1870's states that Asa Averill (1739-1825) lived in this house, suggesting that it was probably built in the late 18th century. Averill may have lived in what is now the ell.
 
There is some internal evidence that the main block once had a central chimney, and that, therefore, its interior was remodeled to the present central hall plan. The entrance and six-over-six windows were probably added in the mid-19th century, while the porches appear to date to the late 19th century. There is some internal evidence that the ell was extended to the rear. Interior clapboarding reveals that the garage postdates the barn. In the mid 20th century, vinyl siding was installed parts of the barn and the garage. The early 1980's saw the addition of a Dutch door and a casement window on the main block's rear facade and of overhead garage doors in the garage
