I am just starting to search for family history of my side of the Rote family.
My great,great grandfather was Peter Rote who was born in 1830 or 1831 and married Elizabeth Baldwin in Dryden,NY Tompkins Co. in 1856. They both died in 1875, he in April while cutting wood and broke both legs. She died in July
They had five children, Ellen born 1857
Ida born 1860
Adelbert in 1864
Edward born 1867
George born 1870
Edward was My Great grandfather. I have more information but I can't seem to get more on Peter, his siblings and parents. Is there anyone out there from this side of the family? We are still all from Central NY area.
