I am pretty sure Sybil was the daughter of Morey and Hannah (Potter) Bates based on morey's will in which he named a daughter, Sybil Smith, among his other children.
I have never found Morey's parents (I suspect he is somehow related to the Mowry/Morey family based on his first name but cannot prove it). Hannah Potter was the d/o Smiton Potter and Lucy Moore. There was some confusionabout which Hannah married Morey but I am pretty certain that I have her line correctly based on some of the work I have done. You can email me directly and I will pass it on to you.
I do not know who Jacob's parents were yet.
