She was 11th of 13 children.

Milcah married Daniel Gates  son of Nehemiah Gates and Elizabeth Baker on 9 Jul 1794 in Worthington, Mass. . Daniel was born on 27 Oct 1744/1745 in Preston, Conn.. He died on 15 May 1832 in Hopewell, Ontario County, N. Y.. He was buried in Hopewel Pioneer Cemetery, Ontario County, N. Y..

Daniel and his first wife and four children moved from Keene, New Hampshire to Vermont
then in 1789 to Rutland county New York before settling in Hopewell, New York. He had nine
children with his first wife and five more with the widow Brown. They came as Presbyterians
and changed to Methodists after arriving in Hopewell. My sister, Mary Ann, has the family

bible for Daniel and descendants. Daniel came to hopewell by boat using the Canadaigua
Outlet on the last leg of the trip. His grave stone disagrees with the Preston records (which
have him born in Oct. 1745 ) and says he died 15 May 1832 at 87 yrs. 7 months, which
would put his birth closer to Oct. 1744. I will go with the stone as I have personally checked
it out. Daniel purchased land from Phelps in town of Gorham for 6d per acre. In April of 1791
he became an officer of the Town of Hopewell. He was first tax collector in the town of
Gorham.

In 1787 at Colchester, Ct., New London Co., on the poll list are:
                                     Daniel Gates
                                     Marvin Gates
                                     Samuel Gates
                                     Nathaniel Otis
Marvin and Daniel removed to NY together in early May 1789 according to
"History of Gorham and Phelps Purchase".

Gorham and Hopewell were formed as Easton January 27, 1789, but as to the date of
organization there appears some uncertainty, the records giving no account of town
meetings previous to April 4, 1797, and from the general character of the minute
book it is doubtless a fact that the town organization was not perfrcted before that time.
The town meeting was then held at the dwelling house of pioneer Frederick Follett,
and officers were elected as follows: Supervisor, Samuel Day; town clerk, James Austin;
assessors, Samuel Day, Frederick Follett, Silas Reed and George Brandage; collector,
John Warren; overseers of poor, Wrn. Engle and Joseph Brundage.' commissioners of
highways, Elijah Hurd, Robert Whittery, Wm. Hicks; constable, John Warren.
Succession of Supervisors - Samuel Day, 1797: James Austin, 1798;
Daniel Gates, 1799-1802; Samuel Reed, 1803-8; et. al.

Adelaide is the one I would pick, if by some divine act, I was allowed to choose my own mother.
She never scolded me. I don't recall her even speaking harshly to me. This, even though I was
the most troublesome of the family. I became rebellious in the third grade and refused to do
school work. I failed that grade and several others until the School Board insisted that I be seen
by a doctor. The doctor found no reason for my lack of good study habits, but, I think, both of my
parents felt that something was wrong and as a result I was treated differently from my siblings
in regard to discipline. I'm sure that my clashes with the academic world caused embarrassment
for the entire family. Adelaide had 9 children an admirable job raising them all and all turned out
to be fine citizens.     -The above was written by Burr (Buster) Cook.
