Hi Georgia, Not sure if you will get this as your query is old, but here it goes...I live in Danby, Tompkins Co., NY. While looking through the abstract of our property I found a couple of deeds that involved Laura & Betsey Puffer. The first dated April 1, 1848 shows Benjamin, Julius, Experience, William, Enos, Mary Ann & Moses Puffer & Isaac Bates and Betsy Bates, as the sellers of the property to Matthias D. Bruce. The second dated May 22, 1849 shows "Jacob Bates, in his own right and as special Guardian of Rufus Bates, an infant under the age of fourteen years, child and heir at law of Laura Bates, deceased" selling property to Matthias D. Bruce. If you are interested, I'd be more than happy to copy them and mail them to you. My email address is Let me know!
