    Link to Google MapsLand - According to Richardson (2015) Edmund sold thirty of his Bear Mountain acres to his son, Phinehas, for $400. The text of that deed begins this way: “I, Edmund Stiles, am selling the north half of the lot I bought from Joseph Pepper.” There is no record, however, of any such real estate transaction between Stiles and Pepper, but Joseph Pepper was the father of Benjamin Glazier’s first wife, Elizabeth Pepper. It may be that Joseph Pepper financed Glazier’s purchase of the Bear Mountain property, thus explaining Edmund’s remembering Pepper — rather than Glazier — as the one who sold him his property. - 1814 - Wendell, Franklin County, Massachusetts Link to Google Earth
