I'm working on my Bates Ancestry - for Obediah Christian Bates - b 12 April 1794 <NY> D. 21 March 1883 Council Bluffs (Pottawattamie County) IA.
For a long time we had him listed as married to a Ruth <LNU>. Curfman's book pages 84-91 lists a Ruth Paddock married to Obediah Bates.
This Ruth Paddock was born ABT May 30, 1797 in NY. dau of Daniel Paddock (1754-1825) and Helen Schoefelt died on 30 SEP 1856 in Illinois. (162). She married Obadiah Bates. <She married Seth Bates.> Ruth married Obadiah BATES before 1822 in NY (c1818/19 by birth of Elenor - prob in/near Western, Oneida Co. NY) buried. In French Grove Cemetery, Peoria Co.,Il. Her Head Stone Reads - Ruth Wife Of Obediah Bates Died Sept. 30, 1856 Age 59 Yrs. 4 Ms.
Can anyone in the Paddock family confirm this marriage?
And in those records, is there any indication of Obediah's birth place.
Also I have Helen Schoefelt, wife of Daniel as possible dau of Johannes Micheal Zufelt & Catherine b c 1762 Kinderhook, NY. Any confirmation or negation?
