The William Pattee that Belle married is part of a mysterious family group that is documented back to his father, William Gaylor Pattee & mother, Elizabeth Parker Kellam. William Gaylor's last name shows up differently as time goes by, the research data shows that. Based on the research so far, I believe William Gaylor Pattee was born William Gaylor Petty and purposely changed or allowed his name to be changed over time. I don't know why. My findings are definitely not conclusive.

According to the 1880 census data, Bell (Crain) Pattee was born IN, her father Canada & mother PA. The 1900 census has her born Feb 1862 IN, father Canada, mother IN. In 1900, Belle had 2/3 children living.

Based on Belle's son's name, Orange, I'm conjecturing that Orange Crain b. abt 1826 Canada and Delita b. abt 1835 OH are Belle's parents. Check the census: 1860 United States Federal Census > Indiana > Steuben > Steuben, pg 488.

There was another Orange Crain but his wife, Abigail(b.Canada), would have been about 50 when Belle was born.
