Descendants of Charles Bateman and Martha Ellis of Rathclaren Parish, County Cork, Ireland

Third Generation


9. Dorendo Bateman 1 (Matthew , Charles ) was born on 26 Oct 1799 in County Cork, Ireland. She died 2 after 18 Jun 1879 in Jackson County, Kansas.

Dorendo married John Parrott son of Matthew Perrott in 1820 in Gloucester County, New Brunswick. John was born 1 on 1 Mar 1794 in near Bandon, County Cork, Ireland. He died on 18 Sep 1879 in Holton, Jackson County, Kansas.

The 1850 Census for Bethlehem Tp, Coshocton County, Ohio (Sheet 201, House 91) lists John at age 55, a farmer with a net worth of $200. His wife's name is listed as Lorina, age 50. Children in the household included: Matthew age 15 and Hesteranne age 12, born in New Brunswick and Elizabeth 10, Martha 8 and Susannah 6, all born in Ohio.
Kathie Simon submitted the following obituary, taken from the Holton Recorder, September 19, 1897:
John Parrott, one among the old settlers of Jackson county, died of old age, at his residence in this city, yesterday at 12 o'clock m. [sic] Mr. Parrott was born near Bandon, Ireland, March, 1894 [sic -probably should be 1794], and was, at his death, past eighty-five years of age. In 1819, about a year after his marriage, he removed from Ireland to Barthel, New Brunswick, and shortly after arriving at his new home, embraced Christianity and joined the Wesleyan Methodist church, in which he was an active laborer, contributing largely to the building of the first Wesleyan church in Barthel. In the year 1847 he removed with his family to Ohio, and from thence to this county in 1859. After coming to the United States he joined the M. E. church, continuing in the same a faithful, conscientious member until his death. He lived with his wife, who survives him, a little over sixty-one years. The deceased was an honest, hard working farmer, who in the course of his life cleared two large farms in the forest and improved one on the prairie. He impressed everyone with whom he came in contact that he was a faithful, zealous Christian and one who enjoyed his religion and esteemed it above every earthly good. His last hours were hours of triumph. Among his last words uttered was a verse of the last hymn written by Charles Wesley: -
In age and feebleness extreme
Who shall a sinful worm redeem?
Jesus my only hope thou art.
Strength of my flesh and failing heart;
O, could I catch a smile from thee
And drop into eternity.
The funeral takes place from the M. E. church this afternoon, at 2 o'clock.

1850 Census Bethlehem Township, Coshocton County, Ohio (Sheet 201 Family 92): Charles Bateman age 46 Farmer Value 1000 Born in Ireland; Mary age 46 Born in Scotland; Jane age 17; Sarah 12; Matthew 10 Born in Ohio; and Sarah age 78 Born in Ireland, Cannot read or write. The John Parrott family and the Jacob Darling family were enumerated on either side of the Batemans. In 1860 Charles , Mary , Sarah 22, Mathew 20.
1880 census, Bethlehem Township, NA Film #T9-1003, p. 26B: Charles farmer, born Ireland, age 76; Mary born Scotland, age 76.

Charles married 1 (1) Martha Hender in 1834 in Diocese of Cork and Ross. Martha was born about 23 Apr 1815. She died on 21 Nov 1840 in Ohio. She was buried 2 in Bateman Cemetery, Bethlehem Tp, Coshocton County, Ohio.

Martha Bateman died November 21, 1840 wife of Charles Bateman, age 25 years 6 months and 28 days (Bateman/Parrott Cemetery, Bethlehem Tp, Coshocton County, Ohio)

They had the following children:

  64 F i Jane Bateman was born 1 about 1833 in Ireland?.
  65 F ii Sarah A. Bateman was born 1 about 1838 in Ireland?.
+ 66 M iii Matthew M. Bateman was born about 1840. He died on 31 May 1885.

Charles married (2) Mary after Nov 1840. Mary was born 1 about 1804 in Ireland or Scotland. She died after 1880.

Mary was Charles' second wife--the 1850 Census gives her birthplace as Scotland.

12. Robert Bateman 1 (Matthew , Charles ) was born about 1815 in Ireland. He died before 1900.

In 1840 there are two Bateman households in Coshocton County, Ohio: one is headed by Charles, the other by Robert. In Robert's household there is one boy under 5 years of age, men in their 20s and 70s, and women in their 20s and 70s. It is likely that Matthew and Sarah were the couple who were in their 70s, and Robert and his wife in their 20s.
The age of the Robert Bateman buried in the Bateman cemetery suggests that he must be the son of Matthew and Sarah. Placement not proven.

He had the following children:

  67 M i unknown Bateman was born 1 about 1838 in probably Ohio.

13. Sarah Bateman 1, 2 (Matthew , Charles ) was born in 1815 in County Cork, Ireland. She died 3 on 9 Dec 1894 in Jackson County, Kansas.

Henderson (1933) indicated that Sarah and her husband Charles were second cousins. If so, Sarah's father Matthew and Charles' father, Swanton would be first cousins, not brothers.
Sarah's Obituary: "Sarah Bateman was born in Bandon, Ireland, 1815, and died at her home in Jackson county, Kansas, December 9, 1894. Her family emigrated from Ireland when she was about two years old. It required six weeks to make the trip across the Atlantic; and at last landed in St. Johns Harbor, New Brunswick. From there they moved to Fredericktown [sic] where they resided about seventeen years. The family consisted of eight children--two boys and six girls. From this place they moved to Coshocton county, Ohio. She was united in marriage to Charles Bateman in 1839. They remained in Ohio about fourteen years, in which time four children were born to them, namely John Henry, William, George and Thomas. From this home they moved to Canada [Ontario], remaining there about five years. Three other children born to them--Robert, Jane and Edward. In moving from this home they took up their residence in Minnesota, but remained there but six months; and from there they moved to Marion county, Iowa, but remained there but one year, when they came to Kansas, locating in Jackson county, at their present home where they resided until the end of her earthly pilgrimage where, on Sunday last, December 9, 1894, she fell asleep in Jesus, surrounded by her family. The companion of her youth, who now bears the burden of eighty-three years, was still by her side as she passed the swelling of the Jordan to the happy home beyond. With a strong trusting faith, he is pressing on and by and bye will pass beyond the coils of sorrow into the clear light of eternal peace, and join her in the anthems of eternal victory.
"In youth before her marriage, she united with the church, so at last she has been a member of the Methodist Episcopal church about sixty years.
"This has been her home for thirty-seven years, and in this residence of over a third of a century you as neighbors have known her as a neighbor, a friend and a member of the church. Cherish all her motherly virtues, emulate every good noble trait, and let your life be better because she lived and may her living and her death help you to see and know more of our heavenly Father's love, and His purposes in your eternal redemption."

Sarah married 1 Charles S. Bateman son of Swanton Bateman and Jane Bateman in 1839 in Coshocton County, Ohio. Charles was born on 24 Dec 1811 in County Cork, Ireland. He died 2 on 21 Feb 1896 in Holton, Jackson County, Kansas. He was buried on 22 Feb 1896 in Holton Cemetery.

In 1880 census for Liberty, Jackson County, Kansas, NA Film #T9-0383, p. 54D: Charles age 68, Sarah 67.
Excerpt from notes recorded at a Bateman family reunion held about 1940 near London, Ontario:
"Swanton Chambers told of his trip to Holton, Kansas to visit Grandmother Bateman’s brother Charles’ family. Charles Bateman went to Holton Kansas travelling with two oxen in a covered wagon and leading two cows. It took two years to complete his journey. When leaving his sister, Mary asked him where he was going? He said, “Where no person was living but there would be when he arrived.” Charles had seven sons, three of whom settled near Holton­. Edward and George were veterinary surgeons and Robert a farmer who still lives near Holton."
DEATH OF CHARLES BATEMAN
Another one of your pioneer citizens has been called from our midst, and a chapter in the history of our county has been closed. In 1857, just afer the townsite of Holton had been laid out, and before any houses had been erected, Charles Bateman, with his family came to Jackson county, and settled on a piece of prairie two miles north of the then staked out townsite. Here he has lived for the past 39 years, doing his part toward the rapid development of our county. His sons have grown into manhood here, and settled around the old home place, becoming under the trainng of the father useful citizens. The influence of such a pioneer does not cease with his laying down the tools of labor; it goes on for generations.
Charles Bateman was born in Ireland, and was at the time of his death, Friday, February 21, 84 years, 1 month and 23 days old. When two years old his parents emigrated to New Brunswick, where he resided 22 years. He then came to Ohio, living there some 16 years. In this state he was married, his wife living until about a year ago, when she preceded him to the better land. He afterwards removed to Canada, then to Minnesota and Iowa, and in May, 1857 came to Kansas. He had been in very good health for a man of his years, and at the last was only sick some three or four days. The funeral was held at the residence of his son, Edward, with whom he was lately resided, on Saturday, the service being conducted by the Rev. E. F. Holland of the M. E. church, to which the deceased belonged.
He leaves four sons, John Henry, George B., Robert, and Edward S., to mourn the departure of a father, and the whole community in which he lived will miss him." (The Holton Weekly Signal, 28 Feb 1896, p. 8). He was buried on 22 Feb 1896 in Holton Cemetery, Holton, Jackson Co, Kansas.

They had the following children:

+ 68 M i John Henry Bateman was born on 12 Apr 1840. He died on 2 Jan 1901.
+ 69 M ii William S. Bateman was born on 26 Jan 1842. He died on 30 Jan 1872.
  70 M iii George C. Bateman was born 1 on 8 Mar 1845 in Canada West. He died 2 on 2 Aug 1911 in Jackson County, Kansas. He was buried on 8 Aug 1911 in Holton Cem., Holton, Kansas.

1900 census indicates George was born in Canada and came to the USA in 1866, although this is clearly incorrect as he was in Iowa in 1856 when he was said to be 10 years old and born in Ohio (as does the 1880 census).
Obituary from the Holton Signal, August 10, 1911 (extracted and transcribed by Kathie Simon):
George C. Bateman was born the 8th day of March, 1845, in the state of Ohio. Deceased spent over a half century in the vicinity of Holton, where he owned one of the finest farms in Jackson county.
Mr. Bateman was 66 years, four months, and twenty-five days at the time of his death. He leaves no children from either marriage. He leaves a widow, Mrs. Susie Bateman, a host of relatives and every one was his friend. His familiar form will be greatly missed by all. Uncle George despised shame of every form, himself honest and frank, he therefore expected the same of every one else. He was sick less than twenty four hours and died August the second. The burial services were conducted at the Baptist church of which he was a member, joining the church a great many years ago. Prayer was offered in the home before leaving for the church in the afternoon at 2 o’clock. It was one of the largest funerals ever held in Holton. The Odd Fellows attended in a body. The pastor, his wife and daughter, and Mr. Jackson did the singing and the sermon was preached from Job using these words, “If a man die shall he live again?” From the church a great concourse of friends accompanied the remains to the Holton cemetery, where amid a profusion of flowers all that was mortal of our dear friend was laid to rest under the auspices of the Odd Fellows dismissed by his pastor, Jesse H. Jones. Uncle George has been toiling with his hands to build a character not massive and grand, but one that like pure gold, will grow brighter with the using, and passing of time, and so we say peace to his ashes and blessings upon his deeds."
Note, although this obituary also says George was born in Ohio, the 1851 Canadian census confirms he was born in Canada.
        George married 1, 2 (1) Louisa Latimer on 27 Jan 1862 in Jackson County, Kansas. Louisa was born on 3 Dec 1848 in Indiana. She died on 7 Jul 1888.

No children on the 1870 or 1880 census. Name also spelled as Latamer. In 1880 listed as "Moriah L.", age 30. This is probably the Louise Bateman who is buried in Holton Cemetery--not confirmed.
        George married (2) Susan M. Williamson on 10 Sep 1889 in Jackson County, Kansas. Susan was born 1 in Oct 1867 in Kansas. She died after Aug 1911.

Margaret's parents were born in Ireland (1900 census).
  71 M iv Thomas S. Bateman was born on 11 Apr 1848 in Canada. He died 1, 2 on 18 Mar 1861 in Jackson County, Kansas. He was buried in Holton Cem., Holton, Kansas.

As for his older brothers, Iowa 1856 census says Thomas was born in Ohio, in contradiction to the Canadian 1851 census.
+ 72 M v Robert A. Bateman was born on 13 Mar 1852. He died on 13 Sep 1940.
  73 F vi Jane Bateman was born in Aug 1853 in Caradoc Twp., Canada West. She died on 6 May 1854 in Caradoc Twp., Canada West. She was buried 1 in Christ Church Cem., Delaware, Ontario.

Burial record in church register.
+ 74 M vii Edward S. Bateman was born on 8 Jul 1854. He died on 8 Jul 1923.

17. William Bateman (George , Charles ) was born in 1795 in County Cork, Ireland. He was christened 1 on 23 Dec 1798 in Rathclaren Parish, Kilbrittain, Ireland. He died on 29 Mar 1850 in Caradoc Twp, Middlesex County, Canada West. He was buried in Christ Church Cemetery, Delaware, Middlesex, Ontario.

Year of birth is from tombstone inscription, but is likely not correct. William Bateman's baptism is listed in the parish register, but his parents were not named. Placement believed correct based on later records for the family. Lived on Lot 12, 1st Concession, Caradoc tp. Cause of death was "consumption" (1851 census).

William married 1, 2 Mary Hodgins on 7 Jun 1832 in St Paul's Anglican Church, London, Ontario. Mary was born 3 in 1817 in Ireland.

1851 census lists Mary and the children

They had the following children:

+ 75 M i Thomas William Bateman was born on 22 Jun 1833. He died on 4 Mar 1907.
  76 F ii Catherine Bateman was born on 6 Mar 1835 in Middlesex County, Upper Canada. She was christened 1 on 15 Jun 1851 in Christ Church, Delaware, Middlesex County.

Baptism sponsors Robert Bateman and John Bateman. No further information on Catherine. Brothers are now known to have emigrated to Kansas.
  77 M iii Robert Bateman was born on 10 Jan 1837 in Middlesex County, Upper Canada. He was christened 1 on 15 Jun 1851 in Christ Church, Delaware, Middlesex County.

Baptism sponsors were Robert Bateman and John Bateman.
In the 1860 census a Robert and Swanton Bateman of Canada were enumerated in the state prison in Jackson, Michigan. Their ages match this Robert and his brother and it is presumed it was likely they. Robert is said to be a carpenter by trade and 23 years of age. Although there is a record of Swanton, the younger brother, being pardoned in 1863, I have not found any record of a pardon being granted to Robert. This is possibly the Robert who married Mary Elizabeth Smith, daughter of Jane Bateman and Matthew Smith, and lived in Kansas, although I have no proof of this relationship (see separate entry for husband of Mary Elizabeth).
+ 78 M iv John William Bateman was born on 13 Aug 1838. He died on 21 Dec 1907.
  79 M v Swanton Bateman was born on 15 Jul 1840 in Middlesex County, Upper Canada. He was christened 1 on 15 Jun 1851 in Christ Church, Delaware, Middlesex County. He died on 14 Dec 1902.

Baptism sponsors: Robert Bateman and John Bateman.
In the 1860 census a Robert and Swanton Bateman of Canada were enumerated in the state prison in Jackson, Michigan. Their ages match this Swanton and his brother and it is presumed it was likely they. In December 1859 Swanton was sentenced to 10 years in prison for robbery. The 1860 census indicates his age was 19 and occupation was "Cons or Com Laborer." May 19, 1863 he was pardoned by Governor Austin Blair ( http://www.rootsweb.com/~miingham/Pardons4.html ).
There is also a record of a Swanton Bateman, age 22, enlisted in the army in Detroit 25 May 1864--probably also this Swanton--he fought for the Union in Company H, 15 Michigan Infantry Unit. He remained a private at the time of his discharge. No further information about Swanton is known. I have not attempted to find more detailed military records to follow this up.
Military and death info. from ancestry.com: Record of Service of Michigan Volunteers 1861-65, Research by Harold Slavik.
  80 M vi George William Bateman was born on 25 Sep 1842 in Middlesex County, Canada West. He was christened 1 on 15 Jun 1851 in Christ Church, Delaware, Middlesex County.

In 1861 a George Bateman, 17, and Albert J. Bateman, 4, lived in same household as Louisa Mills (73), James and Mary Smith and James and May Mills. George was a resident of Iowa when he married. Possibly the George Bateman, aged 55, born March 1845, living in Pottawatamie County, Kansas in 1900. If so, had been married to wife Margaret (born Ireland 1842) for 14 years, so that date fits, even if birth date is out? Census indicates he had immigrated to the USA 34 years earlier. However, that could also be George C. Bateman who was born March 1845. But his wife doesn't fit so well--truly a dilemma to be sorted out!
        George married 1 Margaret J. Williamson on 15 Oct 1885 in Delaware, Ontario. Margaret was born 2 in Mar 1842 in Ireland.

At the time she married, Margaret was said to be 38 years old and a resident of Caradoc tp. Her parents were John and Susan Williamson. In 1900 her birth date was said to be March 1842.
  81 M vii Henry Bateman was born on 6 Jul 1844 in Middlesex County, Canada West. He was christened 1 on 15 Jun 1851 in Christ Church, Delaware, Middlesex County.
+ 82 M viii Richard W. Bateman was born on 15 Jul 1847.
  83 M ix Albert J. Bateman was born about 1850 in Canada West.

Placement uncertain--not with the family on the 1851 census. Probably not the child of William and Mary, but I have no idea who his parents might have been unless his parents were John S Bateman and Ellen Jennings of New Brunswick.

20. Edward Bateman (George , Charles ) was born 1 in 1805 in Kilbrittain, Cork, Ireland. He died on 4 Mar 1895 in Caradoc Twp, Middlesex County, Ontario. He was buried on 8 Mar 1895 in Oakland Cemetery, Delaware, Ontario.

Lived Lot 10 N 1/2 L W Rd, Caradoc Twp.; death reg'n #10581--1895: farmer, age 90, born Ireland, cause of death old age and general debility, informant Wm W Lockwood of Caradoc; burial record indicates he was a resident of Christina. In 1881 Edward and Mary were living with the family of their son William.

Edward married 2 Mary Phillips 1 on 18 Jan 1835 in Christ Church, Delaware, Ontario. Mary was born on 8 Mar 1806 in Upper Canada. She died 3 on 22 Feb 1901 in Caradoc Twp, Middlesex, Ontario. She was buried on 25 Feb 1901 in Oakland Cem, Delaware, Ontario.

Death reg'n #16901--1901: age 95, born Canada, cause of death La Grippe, lived Lot 10, R1S; again a one day discrepancy between church record and death registration--church says 22 Feb, reg'n says 23 Feb.

They had the following children:

+ 84 M i George Bateman was born on 5 Nov 1835.
+ 85 M ii William John Bateman was born on 28 Mar 1837. He died on 11 Apr 1892.
+ 86 M iii Sidney Bateman was born on 1 Aug 1839.
  87 M iv Robert Bateman 1 was born on 24 Aug 1841 in Caradoc twp, Middlesex County, Upper Canada. He died about 1842.
  88 M v Edward Bateman was born on 3 Dec 1843 in Caradoc twp, Middlesex County, Canada West. He was christened 1 on 6 Oct 1844 in Christ Church, Delaware, Canada West. He died in 1851 in Caradoc twp, Middlesex County, Canada West. He was buried 2 on 24 Jun 1851 in Christ Church Cemetery, Delaware, Canada West.

Baptised by Rev. R. Flood
  89 F vi Jane Bateman was born on 28 Apr 1846 in Caradoc twp, Middlesex County, Canada West. She died in 1850 in Caradoc twp, Middlesex County, Canada West.

1851 census indicates unnamed female child died of convulsion on the brain in the preceding year--probably Jane.
+ 90 F vii Margarette C Bateman was born on 2 Sep 1850. She died on 30 Jan 1896.

21. Esther (Hester) Patricia Bateman (George , Charles ) was christened 1 on 8 Mar 1807 in Rathclaren Parish, County Cork, Ireland. She died on 15 Feb 1876 in Caradoc tp, Middlesex county, Ontario. She was buried 2 in Tiffany Cemetery, Delaware, Middlesex, Ontario.

Received into the church 8 March 1807, date of original baptism not known. Sponsors were: Charles Bateman, Martha Bateman, Anne Bateman. Ontario death reg'n #38583: age 66, cause of death Epileptic fit, 5 days; informant James Lockwood.

Esther married 1, 2 Daniel Lockwood son of Benjamin Lockwood and Keziah Springer on 24 Nov 1828 in St. Thomas Church, St. Thomas, Upper Canada. Daniel was born 3 in May 1804 in Wentworth County, Gore District, Upper Canada. He died on 12 Feb 1871 in Middlesex County, Ontario. He was buried in Tiffany Cemetery, Delaware, Ontario.

1871 Census: Caradoc Schedule 2 (died in 12 months preceding 2 Apr. 1871).

They had the following children:

+ 91 M i Benjamin Lockwood was born on 13 Oct 1829. He died on 20 Nov 1891.
+ 92 M ii George Lockwood was born on 21 Oct 1831. He died on 19 Feb 1910.
  93 F iii Catharine Lockwood was born in 1833. She died on 2 Nov 1842. She was buried 1 in Tiffany Cemetery, Delaware, Ontario.

Tombstone: In memory of Catharine dau of Daniel & Esther Lockwood died Nov 2, 1842 AE 9 yrs. 4 ms. 2 ds. (Row 17 #6)
+ 94 M iv Wallace William Lockwood was born on 22 Oct 1835. He died on 5 Aug 1911.
+ 95 M v James Lockwood was born on 5 Oct 1837. He died on 3 May 1911.
+ 96 M vi Henry Jr. Lockwood was born on 25 Nov 1839. He died on 15 Mar 1905.
+ 97 F vii Catherine Lockwood was born on 28 Feb 1844. She died on 1 Jun 1929.
+ 98 F viii Hester (Esther) Lockwood was born on 10 Apr 1847. She died on 18 Jul 1914.

26. Esther Bateman 1 (John , Charles ) was born 2 about 1803 in Rathclaren Parish, County Cork, Ireland. She died in Gloucester County, New Brunswick. She was buried 3 on 8 Jul 1879 in St. George's Anglican Church, Bathurst, New Brunswick.

Esther Bateman, widow age 68, was living in Bathurst in 1871. I was originally given information that Esther died in 1886 and was buried in the "Old Anglican" Churchyard, but I believe that record was in error, and that Hester Bateman, aged 76 and buried in 1879 was probably this woman.

Esther married 2 John Bateman Jr. 1 on 12 Feb 1822 in Rathclaren Parish, County Cork, Ireland. John was born about 1800 in County Cork, Ireland. He died in Jun 1867 in Gloucester County, New Brunswick. He was buried 3 on 28 Jun 1867 in Old Anglican Church, Bathurst, Gloucester County, NB.

Age 60 on 1861 census, but tombstone indicates 68 at time of death in 1866. Irma Downing's transcript of the parish register indicates buried 28 June 1867. (Census records for this family: 1861, Upper New Bandon District, Gloucester County, NB, p. 81, # 563-568 and p. 95, #1124-1127; 1871, Gloucester County, Div. 2, #14; Div. 3, # 47-48.) The baptism record for son William identifies this John as "John Junr", and with "John Senr" as a sponsor.

They had the following children:

  99 M i George Ellis Bateman was born in County Cork, Ireland. He was christened 1 on 20 Apr 1822 in Rathclaren Parish, County Cork, Ireland.

Must have died young (probably in Ireland?), as Patricia Turner did not have George in her records. Baptism sponsors were John Hayes, Esther Hayes and John Bateman.
+ 100 M ii William John Bateman was born in Jun 1824. He died in Nov 1908.
+ 101 F iii Mary Bateman was born about 1824.
+ 102 M iv John J. (Jr.) Bateman was born on 29 May 1835. He died on 10 May 1921.
+ 103 F v Martha Bateman was born about 1839.
+ 104 F vi Esther Bateman was born on 3 Feb 1841. She died on 4 Nov 1929.

27. Mary Bateman 1 (John , Charles ) was born about 1808 in Rathclaren Parish, County Cork, Ireland.

Lived in Fredericton, New Brunswick.
