Dear Tom, Nehemiah Gates b. 1770 who lived in Oho and I believe is wriiten up in the Madison Co History should be the Nehemiah Gates b. 1770 Ridgefield, CT.
1. The Madison Co, OH history said he was born in New York. 2. According to a Westchester Co., NY genealogist most early births, deaths and property transactions for North Salem and Lewisboro,NY were recorded in Ridgefield, CT. 3. Then his mother was a Keeler. The Keeler family still reside in that area.
