born

1814 - 1816

Popular belief is he is born in Dec 1813. I have no proof, or way to back this up. Look for birth/church records. Bible records. Obituary.

Marries Eleanor PIckett

June 17 1837

Still need to get a copy of their marriage record if one exists somewhere. Check Cattaraugus county NY, as well as Washington County (where Eleanor was born). Check church records, as well as county records. Is there a Bible somewhere out there??

According to Eleanor's obit:

Died:

Mrs. Hiram Folts, an elderly lady residing with her son and his wife, Mr. and Mrs. J. D. Folts, in Big Creek, died very suddenly last Saturday morning, heart disease being given as the cause.
She was born Nov. 7, 18 (?) in Granville, NY, her madien name being Eleanor Picket. She was married to Mr. Hiram Folts June 17, 1837, and they came to this Sate in June 1855. Mr Folts died July 20, 1881. Their children number five sons and two daughters. The funeral took place at her late home yesterday afternoon, Rev G A Joslin officiating.
