Family Records - Goodhue & Holbrook

I've uncovered some family birth and death records for my ancestors who lived in Brattleboro, Vermont. These are handwritten notes that are likely to have been written by Anna Elizabeth (Nourse) Holbrook (my second great grandmother) or her daughter, Emerline Mason (Holbrook) Armstrong. There is no date notation on when the records were originally recorded. Surnames in this record, include: Bartlett, Bingham, Bull, Cune, Goff, Goodhue, Hall, and Holbrook.

Here is my transcription of the records:
