Greensborough [Greensboro], Vermont
Orleans county. William Scott Shepard, born March 25, 1789, was the first white child brought forth in this town. For his good fortune in this respect, the proprietors of the township gave him 100 acres of land. "Beautiful lake" and several other lakes and ponds in this town form a part of the head waters of the river Lamoille. This town is well timbered: the surface is not very elevated; the soil in general is good, particularly for grazing. It produces some fine cattle, and keeps about 4,000 sheep. Population, 1830, 784.
