husband Daniel Gates. Mary and Daniel had five children after 1794, all born in Hopewell.

America.


Milcah married Daniel GATES son of Daniel GATES on 9 Jul 1794 in Preston, Conn.. Daniel was born on 27 Oct 1744 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. He was first tax
collector in the town of Gorham. probably not to popular.
