My 3rd great grandfather, Ela Cady, is buried with his wife, Betsey and his son, Alexander in the Pleasant View Cemetery in Williamson. I have been looking for proof of his parents and his wife's surname for for five years. Any help out there?
This is what I've found so far:
Birth 4 Apr 1781, Canaan, Columbia, New York
Death 21 Dec 1845, Wayne County, New York
Burial Pleasant View Cem, Williamson, Wayne, New York
AKA Eli, Ely
Spouse: Elizabeth (Betsey) Waterman (?) (Family tradition has her as a Waterman. I haven't found any proof.)
Laura Elizabeth Cady (1810 - Feb 1900)
Alexander Cady (8 Dec 1811 - 18 Aug 1849)
William Waterman Cady (5 Oct 1816 - 19 Apr 1897)
Rebecca Cady (bet 1802 and 1822 - ????)
Margery Ann Cady (bet 1821 and 1823 - ????)
Family tradition, based on a 1921 DAR application, says Ela's father was Palmer Cady. I haven't been able to prove it.
An "Ely" Cady and his wife Betsey christened five children in Chatham in 1823, if the IGI reference is accurate.
Ela's gravestone says he died 21 Dec 1845, aged 65, which makes his birth year 1780. The DAR application says he was born 4 Apr 1781 and died 17 Dec 1843.
