Lydia Babcocks Parents

+1 vote
I am looking for the parents of Babcock-493 Lydia Esther Babcock. Another genealogist pointed out that she married a Wilder. This would mean Lodowick Stanton Babcock and Lydia White are not her parents. I have Cunningham, Stanton, Wight, Wright, Babcock, Bennett, Maxon cousins. No Wilder cousins.

I'm going crazy trying to figure this out. Her daughter's records say Lydia was born in Pennsylvania and her father Asaph born in New York. I found a record showing Asaph was admitted to an insane asylum. Could she have remarried? I don't have ancestry, only my heritage records and family search records, these connect her to Lodowick Stanton Babcock.

Should I just keep her profile as it is?

Do you see her parents? I looked into a Stephen Babcock. I'm still learning, I see your source, is this the Wilder source?

I'm having a hard time reading the page. Which Lydia are you pointing out?  Thank you for helping. Still searching.
