Inferred child of Alsina:

Mary (Jul 1857 – Jul 1930)
We have two records that name Alsina Babcock. In 1850, she was listed as 13 years old, with her parents and and siblings in Otselic, NY. We also have a cemetery record that Alizina Babcock is buried in the family plot at Floral Hill, New London, Wisconsin. An 1855 Wisconsin Census record showed Jehu Babcock in a family unit of 3 males and 2 females (presumably Jehu, Elsa, Alsina, Silas and William) next to Nathan Davis in a family unit of 1 male and 1 female (presumably Nathan and Sarah Babcock Davis). However, extensive searches for Alsina in the 1860 census were fruitless and she was buried at Floral Hill without a married name. Alsina is presumed to have been the natural mother of Mary L Babcock as Elsa was probably too old (48) to be Mary’s mother.
