I found Clifford Brayton, born 18 Apr 1912 and died 29 Sep 1995 (Monroe Co, NY) in the Social Security Death Index. A search of the obituaries in the Albany Times-Union reveals that he died in Rochester on 29 Sep 1995 and was survived by his wife, Elsie Schoonmaker Brayton, a daughter Suzanne B. Case of Buffalo, and a grandson. According to the SSDI, Elsie died 22 March 1998 in Buffalo, NY, although the local paper does not have a record of her death. A search of the Buffalo area found Clifford B. Case, 1200 Moorman Drive, Buffalo NY 14225. Perhaps this is the grandson???? In any case, I still do not know what happened to his records - I will try and write the SUNY-Albany library directly to find out if they have taken possession of these.
