Notes
a. Note:   James Owen Babcock 1838-1921 Jon Saunders </isapi.dll?c=m&htx=v&siteid=EdyGAE&memberid=000001> - Feb 8, 2008 'Seventh Day Baptist Yearbook', 1921, p 5. James Owen Babcock was born in Clark County, Ohio, October 30, 1838, and died at the home of his son-in-law, Lewis A. Hurley, at Welton, Iowa, January 23, 1921. When he was two years old his parents moved to a farm near Port Jefferson, Ohio, residing there until he was about nine years of age, when they removed to Defiance County, near the fortress of Defiance. In the spring of 1855 they moved to Welton, Iowa, where he made his home until removed by death. Just before the Welton Seventh Day Baptist Church was organized on January 7, 1855, he, with several other young people, was baptized by Elder Lewis A. Davis, thus becoming a constituent member of that church. On April 7, 1866 he was called to the office of deacon, and when the North-Western Association was held at Welton in June, 1869, he and John W. Loofboro were ordained to that office. He served as clerk of that church for twenty years and as corresponding secretary for non-resident members for twenty-four years. On February 2, 1860, he was united in marriage to Miss Almarine VanHorn, who died May 17, 1894. To this union five children were born, three of whom died in infancy. His son, Otis W., of Delmar, and a daughter, Bertha P. Hurley of Welton, with whom he had his home for the last fourteen years, remain to mourn a father who was highly respected by all the community. He was untiring and energetic in what he considered his duty and gave liberally of his means to the church and denomination.
