Hi Susan, Nice to hear from you. I'm going to try to order that obit that mentions the "Colborne relations" and hope that it tells me more. If it names any of the Lakeport/Colborne Battys in my line, we'll have a hit. It's the only lead I have at the moment as to the US origins of my Battys. There was a George among my lot, but not until two generations later. David Findley Batty's son, Findley Wellington Batty, had a son George W. [for Wellington?]. His sister was Mary Antoinette Batty, but then, Mary isn't an uncommon name. There was also a Lydia Batty in Lakeport/Colborne, definitely related to mine, but I haven't been able to figure out exactly how yet. But unfortunately, no obvious first-name patterns that would suggest a connection to the Vermont clan. The only mention of Nicholas Betty/Batty's wife in Lakeport refers to her after his death in the early 1800s as "Widow Batty" -- not very helpful. I'll keep you posted. My lot in Canada was Baptist, including Abigail Batty Doolittle, wife of Vermont-born Ephraim Doolittle (son of Moses).
