I am still trying to locate the parents and siblings of Ethalinda and Sarah Bates. Ethalinda A Batesb. ca 1826-30 NY m. Sareal (many Sp) S. Robbins 1843 in Lake Co., Oh.Ethalinda and Sareal had at least 3 ch: Sillman b. ca 1846, Mary b. 1848 and Herbert Lyman b. 1854.Ethalinda appears in the 1870 & 1880 Lake Co., OH census living with her sister Sarah and her husband Jehial Hurlburt so I am presuming that Sareal had died. Her sister Sarah b. abt 1835 NY m. Jehial Hurburt/Hurlbut in the 1850's in Lake Co., OH.She d. ca 1915 and her parents are given as Phillip Bates and Mary in one place and in another, Smith Bates and Mary Lordy.The parents were supposed to have about 8 ch.Any help on this family would be greatly appreciated.
