Ancestry.com trees list father-daughter relationship but with no proof or sources beyond each others trees.  (Some also list her birth after her supposed mother's death.) Betsey was born in Orange County NY per 1865 NY Census, where Robert eventually resided.  He would have been about 36 at her birth.
WikiTree profile: Robert Caton
closed with the note: Will of Robert Caton lists Betsey Stevens as his daughter and wife of John W. Stevens.

"New York, New York City Municipal Deaths, 1795-1949," database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:2W6X-T4Q : 10 February 2018), Betsy Caton Stevens in entry for Betsy Stevens Goble, 23 Mar 1895; citing Death, Manhattan, New York, New York, United States, New York Municipal Archives, New York; FHL microfilm 1,322,892.

The death record of another daughter indicates her married name and the name of her husband. John Wright Stevens

Thank you for the quick response.  As I do not have a familysearch account I'm unable to view these references. For clarification: the death entry for Betsy Stevens Goble mentions her mother as Betsy Caton Stevens, correct? (BCS is living with B Goble in 1870 census, and both are buried at Hilltop Cemetery) And another daughter lists John Wright Stevens as the husband? (There may be two John W Stevens in NY - one in NYC and one in Chemung county.)  Who died in Manhattan?

Betsy Stevens Goble
Event Type: Death
Event Date: 23 Mar 1895
Event Place: Manhattan, New York, New York, United States
