The following bio (most likely of his father in law) in was found in old public records in "The history and Map of Danby, Vermont" published in 1869:

"Caleb Buffum from Providence, Rhode Island, in 1797, settled at the Borough, in the blacksmithing business. He married Huldah Parris, dau. of Elkanah Parris. In 1806, he purchased the triphammer and shop of Samuel Dow, and continued the business for ten or twelve years. He was a man of sound morals, and was a highly respected citizen. In 1818, he removed to his farm in Mt. Tabor, where he continued to live for many years, during which time he gained many friends, as being a man of strict integrity and uprightness of character. He was a justice of the peace twenty nine years in Mt. Tabor; town clerk and selectman several years, and was a prominent citizen of that town. In 1841, he removed back to Danby, and kept tavern several years. He died at Rutland in 1857, aged 76. His wife died in 1866, aged 86. Their family consisted of eleven children : Lucy Buffum, married Larned Bowen ; Sophia Buffum, married Andrus Bowen, of Dorset ; Almira Buffum, married Dr. Knowlton ; Parris K. Buffum; Daniel Buffum; Heman M. Buffum (Herman Buffam?); Huldah Buffum; Amanda Buffum, m. Rev. Wm. W.

Caleb Buffum, Jr., married Nancy Griffith, dau. of Hiram Griffith, and settled at the Borough. He afterwards m. Sally Ann Slocum. He now lives in Rutland, and is a man of good business talent."

Dorset VT is in Bennington County. We see his first name spelled different ways, not uncommon in genealogy. Also, if you look at the handwritten signature on the scan, it could read either Andrus, or Andrews Bowen.

A beautiful old 1870's clearly signed CDV image of Andrus Bowen, a rather burly large looking gentleman with a full beard.
