New Hampshire's Doctor Granny - Jefferson


May 28. 2013 2:34PM






"Granny" Stalbird, also known as Deborah Vicker, was only the second woman to settle in the town of Jefferson. She married Richard Stalbird and gave birth to five children. But it's her service to the residents of the region that are steeped in legend. Granny is known to have traveled on horseback, healing those by drawing from her nursing training and her knowledge of Native American remedies. Her family lived for four generations at the property now known as the Applebrook Bed & Breakfast.
