Miller Stevens Papers and Riddells Is there A Link?

In my work for the Lost Treasures Committee of the San Diego Genealogical Society, I just finished a lengthy inventory of the Jedidiah Miller and Jonas Stevens papers of Steubin County, NY.

I have some of my own Captain John Riddle or Riddell and Lephe Gates ancestors from Chenango Twp. in Steubin County, NY

I found a Henry Bull (mentioned in Miller exhibit 10 and 12 as a Medical Doctor), of the Lost Treasures documents, buried in the same cemetery as Lephe Maria (nee Riddell) who married Ruel Crumb and who is also daughter of Lephe Gates my ancestor.

It will be interesting to see what else pops up in Steubin County, NY!

In New York State there is a Steuben County and a Chenango County but no Town of Chenango in Steuben County. A Chenango Cemetery exists in the Town of Troupsburg in Steuben County.
