Re: CATOR, Hiram - New York to Wisconsin

In Reply to: Re: CATOR, Hiram - New York to Wisconsin by Thomas W. Cuthbert of 60

Thomas,
According to Alfred Decker Keator (ADK) Hiram Cator was in the 1850 census as a lumberman residing at a hotel in Janesville, WI and later Hiram moved to Center Twp., WI and was a farmer. I could not find Hiram or any Pendell in the 1850 census. I did find a John Kimbell, age 48, born NH; a Lucy Kimbell, age 48, born NH; a Lucy M. Kimbell, age 14, born NY.
Speculation: Lucy's middle name is Melvina and she used Melvina to distinguish herself from her mother.
In the 1860 census it shows Hiram Cator, age 38, born NY; Melvina (no last name) age 25, born NY. This is consistent with Lucy M. Kimbell's 1850 census information.
"The Janesville Gazette" has Hiram Cator marrying Melvina Kimbell, 15 Jun. 1854.
ADK has Hiram Cator marrying Melvina Kimbell, 15 Jan. 1854.
