Orlow and Phenie Cordelia Jones Babcock were my great-great grandparents.

Daniel P. Babcock was born 1 February 1818 in Riga, Monroe County, New York. 1  “… Left two sons—Harlow N., born Oct. 11, 1850 ; married Lydia Fisher, of Waushara Co., Wis., Feb. 22, 1873, and now lives in Stoughton, Dane C., Wis., where he is foreman in a large flouring-mill ; Charles F., born April 29,1857, in Springvale ; is living with his mother on the homestead, which consists of 85 acres of land, valued at about $40 per acre ; P. O. Ladoga.”2

In previous blogs, I have shown the residences of Harlow and Lydia Babcock.  Now, I will show what I know about Charles F. Babcock.

Known is that sons Harlow/Harlo and Charles F. were living with their parents, Daniel and Adelia, in 1860 and 1870.3, 4  Also known is that by 1 June 1880, both of the sons were no longer living with their widowed mother.5

By 1900, Charles F. Babcock is residing in Dawes County, Nebraska.  He is married to Phebe C.  They were married about 1885 per the census.  In the household, as of 8 June 1900, are Charles (age 43, born Wisconsin), Phebe C. (age 42 born Iowa), Alpha M. (age 13 born Nebraska), Wallie P. (age 12 born Nebraska), Gwyn (male, age 6 born Nebraska), Curtis (age 1 born Nebraska), and Michael Mcgrath (boarder).6

By 1910, Phebe is a widow and continues to reside in Dawes County, Nebraska.  In the household, as of 4, 5, and 6 May 1910, are Phoebe E. (age 53), Wallace P. (age 21), Gwyn H. (male, age 16), and Curtis F. (age 11).7  According to a Nebraska gravestones website (awaiting permission to post information from gravestone), both Charles and Phebe are buried in Nebraska.  And, Charles did die 1900-1910.

By 1920, Phebe is a widow and continues to reside in Dawes County, Nebraska.  She is living with her son.  In the household, as of 24 January 1920, are Gwyn Babbock (male, age 25), Phebe Babbock (mother, age 61), and Aaton P. Slaton (nephew, age 9).8

In 1930, Phebe continues to live in Dawes County, Nebraska.  The census names are very difficult to read – her name appears to be Peyce.  As of 7 April 1930, the following are in the household:   Peyce Babcock (age 69, born Iowa), Gwyn Babcock (son, age 34), and Jewel Slaten (granddaughter, age 22).9

According to a Nebraska gravestones website (http://nebraskagravestones.org/), Phebe did die after 1930.

This concludes what I now know about the Daniel Babcock family.  My next post will include some ideas for research!
