Daniel Bates
Contributed by Annette Campbell

Daniel Bates was born in the province of Quebec, September 19, 1817, son of Cyrus 
and Hannah (Webster) Bates, natives of Connecticut and New Hampshire,
respectively. He died in OTSEGO county in 1840, and she in Woodhull, NY. Daniel
Bates was reared on a farm and educated in the common schools, and has since
followed farming and coopering. In 1853 (the same year his wife's father Joseph
Northrup died-AC) he came to Steuben county, where he owns 119 acres of land. In
1843 he married Amy Northrup, by whom he had eight children, six of whom grew to
maturity. His second wife was Harriet Church, by whom he had three children. The
great grandfather was born on the ocean and lived to be 104 years of age. From "Landmarks of Steuben County" by Hon. Harlo Hakes 1896 NOTE: I have more info on this family, including the Will of Joseph Northrup of 1853
listing all children.
