After working as a farm laborer in Braintree, Vermont, George D. Blanchard (1834 to 1885) met and married Ellen Blood in Plainfield. Working 8 miles southwest in Barre, he labored in daguerreotyping and then precepted in dentistry. Two years after the 1862 birth of son Edwin, Dr. Blanchard moved his practice and family another 22 miles southwest to West Randolph, where he advertised eventually (above) that he had “used Gas and Ether for 25 years with perfect success.” Son Edwin earned his D.D.S. in 1885 just months before his father passed away.
