Uriel E. Babcock was my Great Great Grandfather, he was born Feb 17th 1835 where he was born is not certain, but was told he came from Ohio, possibly Concord area before moving to Sheridan, Michigan. There he married Jane Lamont May 20th 1858. Uriel & Jane had 9 children. Alice, Nora ( AKA Laura )Semona, Elsworth, Arthur, Lewis, Ellen, Ida Mae, and Lamont Babcock.
I have some information on his children, and quite a bit more on Jane's Lamont side, but have not been able to find out who Uriel's parents were. According to a few census I have seen, Uriel had a brother Silas/Elias, a brother Samuel, a siter Philecta, and another sister Francisco, ( Francisca?)
If anyone has information on Uriel ( sometimes spelled Uriah, and Urial ) please do contact me.
Clayton Link was born July 25 1880 in Branch, MI.
His parents were Richard W. Link & Mary Ann Springer.
Clayton married Jennie P. Babcock Sept. 9 1922.
Clayton died at the age of 44 in Great Falls, Montana
on March 15 1925 from asphyxiation by illuminating gas
in a lodging house. Clayton's body was sent back to South
Bend, Indiana, and services were held at the Babcock home
at 1112 West Washington, South Bend, IN. and his body was

April 27 1923 Mrs. Jane Anne Babcock Burgett 32 yrs old died at
the home of her parents, Mr. & Mrs. Lewis Babcock ( 1112 West Washington Ave., South Bend Indiana ) she was pronounced dead at
3:55 P.M. after a five month illness from heart trouble. She was
born in Calhoun MI June 30 1890, and had been a resident of South
Bend for the last 13 years. She was survived by 1 daughter Irene Burgett.
There was no mention of her husband, so I am trying to find out
who Mr. Burgett was, and wondering what ever happened to Irene, her
daughter. If anyone has any information on who Mr. Burgett may have
been, or know of Irene who was about 13 years old when her mother died, please contact me.
I am searching for more information on Joseph D Lozier.

While searching for history of my great grandmother "Cora Belle Briggs / Babcock" :
I ran across a 1920 Census from Portage Twp South Bend Indiana
I found Clayton S Link was listed as a boarder of the home of Lewis & Cora Belle Babcock at 1112 West Washington St.
What is odd is his name also showed up as married to my great aunt, Jennie Pearl Babcock in CA death Index.
I found Clayton Link's Obit in the South Bend Tribune. He died March 15 of 1925 in Great Falls Montana while at a lodge. It stated he had died from asphyxiation from illuminatin gas. His body was sent back to South Bend, Indiana and the funeral services were held at the 1112 West Washington house, and then he was buried at Riverview Cemetery on Portage St in South Bend. It never mentioned that he was or ever had been married, no survivers were listed. So I am very curious to know who Clayton's family was. I went to his grave site and took a photo of his headstone, so if any family members would like to see it, let me know.
I have been searching for my great grandmother " Cora Belle Briggs "
Cora Belle Briggs married Lewis D. Babcock March 14 1889 in Newton Twp. Calhoun MI
Cora Belle was born July 17 1868, or 1869. Not sure where, can't seem to find any information of her place of birth, but was told it was in MI.
I do know her and Lewis moved to South Bend IN. and separated, but not sure when. Cora then moved to Los Angeles CA with her daughter Jennie Pearl, and grandson Walter E. Babcock. Robert U. Babcock was Cora's son, and my grandfather, he stayed here in Indiana. He was born in Calhoun MI June 28 1892 and died Sept 5 1969
