Thanks for the response.I wish I knew Daniel's parents, but unfortunately I don't.I have learned a little additional information.I believe that Daniel was born in Vermont about 1804, but have nothing to confirm this.I believe Betsey was born in Vermont about 1808, but again have nothing to confirm this.Daniel died in Adams County, NE about 1894.His wife Betsey died there on Jan. 24th 1898.They had 5 surving children:
John H. Oatman Charles E. Oatman Henry Oatman Ellen J. (Oatman) Cox H. W. (Oatman) Olmstead - female
There was possibly another daughter, Abigail.Most if not all the children were born in New York.The family moved to Illinois in 1855 or 1856.Daniel & Betsey moved to Adams County, NE in 1881.
Does this help?I am slowly but surely gathering some information on this line & would be happy to share if you are interested.Thanks!
