     He was baptized on 10 December 1769 at Portsmouth, Rockingham, New Hampshire.4 Nathaniel Babb married Olive McIntire on 2 March 1796 at Lancaster, Coos, New Hampshire.1,5 Nathaniel Babb lived in 1800 at Guildhall, Essex, Vermont. He is listed as being between 26 and 45 as is his wife. He also has two females under 10.6 He lived in 1810 at Guildhall, Essex, Vermont. He is listed as being between 26 and 44, as is his wife. Four females under 10 and one between 10 and 15. Presumably, one of the females listed as being under 10 in 1800 had died, leaving only the one between 10 and 16.

Nathaniel disappears from Guildhall before the 1820 Census, as does his wife. They could have moved west as did many Vermonters of that era, or they might have succumbed to tuberculosis, which was very common in Vermont at that time.

Since their daughter Olive married Samuel Ritchie in September of 1827 in Groveton, NH, I suspect that they might have indeed died and Olive was living with relatives, perhaps McIntires, in either Groveton or Lancaster at the time of her marriage. Guildhall, VT, is just across the Connecticut River from Lancaster, NH, and there was a John McIntire listed as living in Lancaster in the 1820 Census. The John (who died in 1820) could have been Olive Babb's grandfather or her uncle.7,8 He died before 17 March 1831 at Guildhall, Essex, Vermont.9 He was New Tag on 17 March 1831 at Guildhall, Essex, Vermont.9 His estate was probated on 22 March 1831 at Guildhall, Essex, Vermont.9

Olive McIntire1

F, b. circa 1778
Father*John McIntire b. c 1739, d. c 1820; Whether or not she is John's daughter is a hypothesis without proof on my part. She was clearly a member of John, Jr.'s household in Lancaster, NH, 1896 when she married Nathaniel Babb. At the time of her possible birth in Fryeburg, Maine, that town was just getting started and it comes as no surprise that her birth might have gone unrecorded. Her brother Phineas' birth wasn't recorded either.

I think the final piece in the evidence that clinches Olive as the daughter of John and Esther Nowell, is the fact that Esther had a younger sister named Olive. The name Olive was an unusual name at the time. I think that, given the evidence, Olive McIntire was indeed the daughter of John and Esther (Nowell) McIntire.

In any event, Olive was almost certainly a descendant of Micum McIntire, either via John, Sr. or another relative. I am assuming that her father was John Sr.2,3,4
