I am looking for the BATES family including Comfort BATES b. in England, lived in Lenox MA and his son Otis BATES b. 1777 Stephentown, NY…
In his will dated 1796, Abraham Todd of S.Salem left farm bought of Jubez Close, Stephentown (now Somers) to his son David Todd (b. 1776). Abraham died the next year.
John H. Worden b: July 29, 1744 and his wife Sarah Brayton b: May 04, 1748 were the first Worden’s in NY emigrating from Connecticut.
My most frustrating family line is my Wheeler line, given that I can’t find any parents for the subject of this essay. There isn’t a lot known about Stephen, other than he had several children, by at least three different “wives”, and the first two “wives” are unknown.
We have reason to believe that this Ruth Moone may have connections to the Rose family or the Sweet family.
