Dennis O. Gates 1828 NY-1902 MN from death record

During a search of Dodge Co.,Minnesota, death records I happened upon the following in the Dodge County Court House records in Mantorville : Death Register C Page 9 :

Gates, Dennis O.
white, male, married
d. June 23, 1902 age 73 yrs 9 mos. 29 days farmer
dob August 24, 1828 pob NY
father's name : Oldham Gates b. NY
mother's name : Mehitable Hatfield b. NY

last resided : Mantorville, Dodge Co., MN
buried : Wasioja, Dodge Co., MN
died of Cholangitis & gall stones

I recognized the father's name as one of the Oldhams I encountered as I was tracing my line through Mehitable Gates b. 1746 (dau. of Oldham Gates b. 1716, MA & Mehitable Trowbridge b. 1725/1726, MA) who married James Cloyes in 1765.

The death record details listed above are as found in the index - I do not pretend to know whether they are in fact correct nor do I have any further info on Dennis O. Gates.

I hope this is of interest to someone.

I would be interested in hearing from you regarding your line through Mehitable Gates. I haven't collected any information on her line to date. Her brother Jonas was my 5th great grandfather.Please email me at if you'd like to exchange information.
