Orlow and Phenie Cordelia Jones Babcock were my great-great grandparents.   This is the 4th blog concerning my research into the father of Orlow, Daniel P. Babcock.

As I stated in my previous blog, I will first show where Orlow was living while he was being raised.  He and his brother, George Washington, were living in the family of William D. Babcock.

In the 1850 U.S. Census for Allegany County, New York, William Q. Babcock is heading his household.1  As of 31 July 1850, in the household were William D. (age 42, Carpenter, born NY), Sarah (age 37, born NY), Fanny C. (age 14, born NY), Martin V. (age 12, born NY), Orlow (age 8, born NY), George W. (age 5, born NY), and Elizabeth C. (age 3, born NY).

In 1860, William Babcock and his family are still in Allegany County, New York.2  As of 20 August 1860, in the household were William (age 51), Sarah (age 48), Martin (age 22), Orlow (age 17), George (age 16), Celinda (age 13), and Mary (age 8).

In 1870, the census in Allegany County, New York, in which the family lives, has been mis-numbered.  Orlow Babcock is shown as being in the previous-to-the-rest-of-his-family household – that of an entirely different family.  Orlow Babcock is in dwelling 239 and family 2433, while the rest of the family is in dwelling 240 and family 244.4 As of 27 July 1870, in the “family” were Orlow (age 27), Phenie (age 23), Martin (age 2), Jennie (age 1/3), William (age 67), and Sarah (age 62).

By 1880, William and Sarah Babcock have died.

This concludes this installment.  Next installment will be more about Daniel P. Babcock.
