Looking for the mother of Mary Alice Apthorp Snyder. On May Alice's (May) Death Certificate it states that her Mother was MARY ALICE BAINS of Fredonia. The Father is listed as David Apthorp of Fredonia. Oral family history states that May was born out of wedlock, but was raised by her real Father, David, and his wife Caroline (Carrie). I have reached a deadend. I cannot find anthing at all about May's Mother, Mary Alice Bains. I have all the information on David Apthorp already. I have searched Fredonia Federal Census line-by-line for 1880 and 1900 Census, thinking she may have been a servant in a household or a boarder, but I have not come up with anything, nor can I find her in a cemetary with what is available on line. Any help would be appreciated.
