Cyrenius Bates date of birth is an estimate, presuming he was at least age 21 on the date of his marriage in 1841. He was born to (Unknown) Bates and Catharine (Unknown.) His mother Catharine Bates is shown at age 70, living with Hannah Brown and children, in the 1860 US Census for Eugene Twp. Vermillion Co. IN. Hannah Brown was possibly a sister in-law of Emily Ann Brown.
Syrenius Bates married Emily Ann Brown on Mar. 11, 1841 in Licking Co. OH. It states that her father appeared. Found this recording on Ancestry.com. His name may possibly be spelled Cyrenius instead.
They later moved to Vermillion Co. IN. He evidently died there before 1860 as she was left a widow with several children, Susannah, Eliza A., John Marion and Elizabeth Ellen Bates.
