Rebecca Hart and Oliver Bates had ten children: Oliver Bates, Asa Bates, Polly Bates, Cyrus Bates, Blias Bates, Elias Bates, Hart(1) Bates, Hart(2) Bates, Laura Bates, and Fanny Bates. Their son, CYRUS BATES, was born 1792 in Halifax, Vermont. Also born in Halifax, in 1795, was Lydia Harrington, daughter of Daniel and Sarah (Carpenter) Harrington. In 1813, Cyrus Bates married Lydia Harrington, not in Halifax, but in Henderson, New York. How Cyrus got to Henderson is not known, but at least his father accompanied or followed him as Oliver Bates died in Henderson in 1828. Whether Cyrus' mother, Rebecca (Hart) Bates, accompanied Oliver is unknown. How Lydia Harrington came to be in Henderson is not known, either. Her father apparently died in Halifax, Vermont, but the date is not known. Perhaps her widowed mother moved to Henderson about the same time as the Bates family.
