Seeking information on the ancestry and descendants of Orestes Badger, who died in Otsego County, NY, in October 1850, at the age of 58. He married my ggg-aunt, Polly Vandercook, of Rensselaer County, NY. Polly died on July 9, 1861, at the age of 62. The couple had a daughter, Naomi, who died on February 28, 1836. Was Major John Badger, an early settler of Otsego County, the father of Orestes? Does anyone know the ancestry of this Badger family?
