Okay ... I'm really not sure what Samuel's wife's name was, but I'm really hoping to find out. I followed one clue that it was Harriett, but someone else found a cemetery record for Summer Hill, Cayuga Co, NY showing:
Abigail Patten, died 25 Feb 1847
The Samuel I'm searching for was born abt 1806 in New York. Children included:
Christiana, b. 10 Dec 1828 James, b.24 June 1835 Lyman, b. abt 1837 David, b. abt 1838 Cordelia, b. abt 1842 Samuel b. abt 1845
Samuel (age 44) and these children are listed on the 1850 Sempronius, Cayuga Co census. Also listed are:
Betsey Patten & Christina Patten, both age 20 - I'm not sure what relation they are to Samuel. Was one a young second wife? Were they twin sisters? Were they Samuel's daughters? Were they family members who moved in to help care for the younger children following Samuel's wife's death? Beats me. ;) Never heard of them aside from this census.
