thank you, but that still doesn't tell me where Almedia was from, and who her parents were. The census only shows that Mr. Denning is probably a step-father. Charlotte could have been mom, but really not sure, and I cannot find her prior. NY is a difficult state to research from a distance so I'm hoping someone has a clue where I can look. The family has been trying to find Almedia's marriage record, no clue where that is either. We think she was married in Buffalo????? At any rate, do appreciate your help.
