Eliphaz B. Gates' family including wife Mary E. (Hickock), daughters Adeline, Helen M., Elizabeth Jane, and Mary, also son Jerome are found 1850 census Darien, Walworth Co. WI. I descend from son Jerome.
I know some about two of the sisters (Helen and Elizabeth), but only that Adeline m. Charles E. Griffin (both living w/ Eliphaz in 1860) and nothing at all about Mary, b. 1843 while the family was still living in NY, with family in 1850 and 1860, presumably married by 1870.
Eliphaz, his wife Mary, son Jerome and his wife Louisa Irish are buried in Spring Grove Cemetery. I note also a Charles E. Griffin buried there, but have no way of knowing if this is Adeline's husband and no sign of her.
Does anyone have more information about this family? I'm happy to share what I have with others. Thanks, Kate MacMillan
