I am searching for information regarding Francis F. Gitchell,born 1837, Steuben Co., New York, married Polly Decker, died during Civil War. His father was Frank Gitchell, born 1814, NY., who was married to Betsy Short Cole, who I believe was a step-mother to Francis F. Brothers to Francis F. were William and John born in 1840's. I think Frank's father was Jesse or Ebenezer Gitchell(?) who also lived in the Steuben Co. area starting in the early 1800's. Does anyone tie into this line? I cannot go back any further. I do know that my line of the Gitchells (some of them) went to Michigan in the mid-1800's. The rest (my direct line) settled later on in Tioga Co., Pa. Thanks for any help on this!!
