Surnames: Batchelder, Batcheller, Bachellor, Bowe
Lois Batchelder (Batcheller, Bachellor) married Prosper Bowe in Lyme, Jefferson county, NY in 1825. Prosper Bowe had lived in Lyme with his parents since at least 1820, but it is unknown how long Lois lived there because the names of her parents are not known. Lois and Prosper had at least eight children, all born in Lyme:

Parthenia Maria, b. 1826, Frances A., b. 1828, Lucinda M., b. 1830, Lois Ann (my ancestor), b. 29 Oct 1832, Oliver Paul, b. 1834, Addison A., b. 1836, Mary E., b. 1841 and William H., b. 1843.

Most of the family left Lyme in 1855 and relocated in Lyndon, Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Lois died in 1859 and is buried in Waldo, Sheboygan, WI.

The few facts known about Lois come from the 1850 census, the only one in which she appeared by name, and a couple death records of her children which confirm her maiden name but reveal nothing else. Any clues about her parents and/or where she was born will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
