Subject: [NYSTLAWR] Martha P. Carr daughter of William H. Carr and Permelia
Date: Fri, 19 Nov 2010 20:58:12 -0500
You are welcome. I am happy to help at any time.
Regarding Parmelia's maiden name. Your best bet is to get a death
Orson, since I know he was living into the 1900's when better info was
on dc's, which often list "mother's Maiden Name".
Melissa is a possibility too, to order a death certificate for Mother's
Maiden name, if she lived as long
If I can be of any further assistance, just let me know.
Sorry...about Martha. I have an unknown brother of my great grandfather
in Stockholm, St. Lawrence Co., NY. His wife and 4 yr old show up on
the 1850 census and I have never been able to find his name. There is
another unknown sibling also, who died young and name continues to
be a mystery. So frustrating. But, you have inspired me. Think I will
post the St. Law list with all I know...
Thanks and good luck,
