The Two Sisters
Although born in South Dakota and raised in northwest Iowa, Monica and Tamra’s Vermont connections go back to the Revolutionary War when their ancestor, Josiah Pond, fought in the Battle of Bennington and, after the war, lived and died in Shoreham, Vermont. Another ancestor is a Sheldon who reportedly fought alongside George Washington and later settled Sheldon, Vermont, not far from Jeffersonville, where Two Sisters Mill & Mercantile is located.
