Looking for any info on Olive WILLIAMS (bc 1813 Delaware Co., NY - d. ?). She was married to Jonas HOBBS (b. 31 Aug 1772 MA - d. 15 Mar 1861 Bloomville, Delaware Co., NY). They were married on 3 Feb 1831 Andes Township. Deaths and Marriages in the “Delaware Gazette” 1819-1840. Issue dated 9 Feb 1831:“In Andes on 3rd inst. by Rev. Mr. Lounsbury, Mr. Jonas Hobbs, age 67 [sic], married Miss Olive Williams, age 18.” (This is the 3ed marriage of Jonas HOBBS)

Jonas HOBBS and Olive WILLIAMS had one known child:
Phebe M. HOBBS (b c.1841 Delaware Co., NY - d. ?). She is living with Nathaniel Heath and wife Cassandra in Walton, Delaware Co., NY in the 1850 and 1855 NY census.

In the 1865 Delaware County census Olive (WILLIAM) HOBBS is living with the McCUNE family in Kortright and is listed as a nurse.

A James McCune (b. 1785 Ireland) and his wife Phoebe Ann Nichols were married in Bovina and have been reported to have adopted a Olive (Williams) Hobbs????

Any information appreciated,
