Jacqueline, I've just found a bit more on the Smith Batchelder's wife Lydia.Lydia Dresser Bellows who m. Smith does appear to be the widow of Elias Bellows.She relinquished responsibility for her son, Taylor W. Bellows 10/26/1867 and m. Smith 10/28/1867.Taylor had married 10/22/1867 Sarah Wood, eldest dtr of R. B. Wood. Taylor died at the home of his sister, Mrs.J.F. Parsons, in E. Somerville, Ma. on 6 July 1890. [Joseph F. Parson and spouse Ella C. are on the 1880 census in E. Somerville.] I still don't know the father of Elias, but his uncle was John...all we need is John's brother's name.
