Nathan and Sarah LOBDELL bought land here from the estate of James SPENCER
in 1863. "... paid by Nathan Lobdell of Kane County and State of Illinois."


Perhaps the above will be of interest sometime to someone on this
list. Apparently, Sarah LOBDELL is the wife of Nathan LOBDELL (b. 18 Sep
1839 Fairfield, VT).

Nathan LOBDELL married Sarah DIMON (b. 15 Oct 1842 Weston, Fairfield
County, Connecticut, d. 19 Jan 1897 at Rockford, Winnebago County,
Illinois). Sarah was the daughter of Thomas and Sallie E. (Treadwell)
Dimon. According to an online Illinois marriage index, they were married
03/04/1882 in Kane County, Illinois (License No. 5303)

After Sarah's death, Nathan LOBDELL m. 2nd Hellen M. SMITH. At one time
Nathan LOBDELL resided at 213 West Street, Rockford, Illinois.


I am researching Joseph LOBDELL. Three of his married daughters lived in
Buffalo Township, Linn County. Some of the land in the above deed is in
Linn County, Buffalo township. My interest is in determining if Nathan is
related to Joseph LOBDELL. So far, it seems the co-location is just a
coincidence. Joseph LOBDELL lived near Lena in Stephenson County,
Illinois. He previously lived in Will County, Illinois, and Cayuga County,
NY. He was born in Herkimer County, NY, about 1801. His father's history
is quite a mystery. Many facts directly correspond to a Joseph LOBDELL who
was captured at age 13 in April 1777 with his father and two brothers and
taken to Canada (and later collected a military pension). However, other
"facts" directly clash with this Joseph (eg: he drowned at Naseau, NY, a
few months before the birth of his only son). Any help researching this
family is appreciated.
