Notes

Ref: VR East Haddam Vol. LR6, 505

Their marriage is recorded in Gates History written by Mrs. Erlin Bartlett, 1611 S. Arrawana, Tampa, FL, 33609. Mrs. Bartlett listed him as Oliver (Elizur) Gates. Perhaps he decided to use Elizur for his first name as there was another Oliver Gates living in Sharon, Schoharie Co., NY when he went there to live.

They lived in CT when their first child was b 1796; then move to Sharon, Schoharie Co, NY, by 1798, where he owned land in 1807. While there Elizur was an ensign in Lieut. Col. Commandant John Rice's regiment 1804-1809. By 1806 he had been promoted to Captain. (Military Records 1784-1821 Council of Appointments, p. 728, 852>) In later years his granddaughter said he was always called "Capt." Gates.

By 1810 they were in Manlius, Onon, Co. NY, where they bought land and made their home. By 1835 part of Manlius had been taken off to make the township of Dewitt.

Both are buried in Messina Springs Cem., Dewitt, NY. In his will prob. 19 mar 1831, he left 1 cow and 5 sheep to each of his two older daughters, Harriett Little and Gettee Saxton. Sary was given feather bed and bedding. Peter, Eli, Sary, Sally and Rosamond were given $200. Alson was given all of the real estate, and personal property, except that mentioned above. Alson was to provide, support and maintain his mother at his own home: also provide for his sisters, if they remained with him until they were 21 yrs. When Abigail died she left no will. Her estate was $200.
