Regarding my great-grandmother, Lydia Frances Paddleford of Dale, Wisconsin, born in Greene,NY 1843 and married to George Washington PRENTICE, I'm trying to fill in the blanks and confirm or throw out one of the two ancestry reports below. Can someone help? She seems to be the sister of Delilah Paddleford b 1833 who married Cyrus Lewis and Phebe Paddleford, b about 1842 who married Jackson Dyer, and Niles Paddleford, born abt 1824. BUT I suppose they could be close cousins to her as well. Please let me know if you have information for me.

Ancestry 1.
Lydia Frances Paddleford and the three siblings above are the children of William Morris Paddleford (son of Philip Paddleford and Lydia Elliot)and Betsey Niles (daughter of Aaron Niles?).

Ancestry 2.
In an old letter I read that Lydia Frances Paddleford was descended from:
Roxanna Amanda CORNISH b. 1810 married in 1828 William MATHESON(or Elijah MATISON in another document)* and moved from GREENE, NY area to Ohio.
Their daughter
______________ Matheson, born abt. 1826 who married Mr.__________Pattleford (or Paddleford)

who had a daughter,
Lydia Frances Pattleford (or Paddleford) "Frankie" b. 07 Jan 1843 She married
George Washington Prentice b. 1839 in Smithville, NY and they moved to Wisconsin ( Hortonville or Dale)
These last were my father's grandparents. I'm eager to find their roots.
