  • Notes 
    • Oh, yes. OK here's some. Solomon was the oldest and Alfred the you8ngest. Which from my point of view was good as the four older brothers served in the Civil War and two were killed. Alfred was too young to go. E160. BATTIN, Alfred (John, Richard, Richard, Richard, John). Alfred was born Feb. 10, 1850 in Boone Co. IN and was the only son of this family too young to enlist for Civil War service. He married first Dec. 24, 1873 in Wabasha, Wabasha Co. MN, Mary Elizabeth Benedict, born Sept. 8, 1852 in CT, daughter of James Knox Benedict and Phoebe Ann Pond, both descendents of old colonial families. They had arrived in MN in 1856. This couple were 7th Day Adventists and had: E415.Greta Madelein born in St. Paul, Ramsey Co. MN Nov. 6, 1878. I cannot confirm her birth for the birth records for that year have been lost. She is found in Grafton, Sibley Co. MN with her parents in 1880. She married in Steele Co. MN Fred O. Baker, born Feb. 11, 1875, son of George Washington Baker and Rosetta Ann Champlin also descendents of old colonial families. They had: Merrill Frank who married first Florence Holmberg, second Blanche Holmberg Coleman, and third Della Davis Sheffield; Lynn Everett who married first Mary _____, second Florence Smith; Glenn Elton single; Dorothy Claire who married Wilbur David Roberts. Greta died in Miami, Dade Co. FL Jan. 28, 1950 and Fred died there Dec. 1, 1954. They are buried there as is Glenn Elton. E416.Jay Knox Mary died in childbirth with this last child in Wabasha Mar. 27, 1885 and according to Greta, was buried in the cemetery at Reed's Landing where the Benedict family is buried. I find no stone, she is not included in the cemetery records, and there is no death record in Wabasha Co. Yet, Greta was my grandmother and told my mother these facts. She was old enough to attend the funeral and was certain about the cemetery. I am inclined to take her word for it but wonder at the lack of documentation. Alfred married second Ida Douglass, daughter of Frederick Douglass and Abigail Louise Carpenter. It is my understanding that they were married in SD where they had gone separately to homestead. They had: E417.Viola Ora born July 8, 1889 in Kingsbury, SD who married William Cecil Gates Jan. 7, 1917 and had: Dorothy Priscilla Mar. 8, 1922 married Harold Kisling; Harold Norman Oct. 1, 1926 married DeltaLee McIntyre. Viola died Oct. 15, 1954 at Terra Bella, CA Alfred and Ida returned to Medford, Steele Co. MN and farmed in that area. Ida died Aug. 26, 1910 in Medford only a block from the house in which she was born. She was buried in Medford Union Cemetery there. She was survived by Alfred, Greta, Jay K., Viola, Fernando Douglass and Nettie Douglass. The last two were brother and sister. Alfred went to CA and died July 23, 1911 at St. Helena. The notice of his death in the 7th Day Adventist newspaper gives his birthdate as Feb. 10, 1849 in IN. Services were at the 7th Day church in St. Helena. Mouraine Dr. Mouraine R.
