My mother's mother (ELVIRA BRINKS MESSENGER) died in TRUMANSBURG NY in late 50s. My mother unable to remember much. Would like help from any one who knows about her marriage to my Great Grandfather Lawrence MESSENGER also in TRUMANSBURG. His son Clarence was a CONSTABLE in Trumansburg and his Boss at the time was an EARL UPDIKE (UPDYKE). He was common law with a HATTIE LINDERMAN who left him and two girls (my mother DORIS JEAN MESSENGER and her sister MARY ALICE MESSENGER who later married a WALTER KANIA (I think he was from around Buffalo, NY) who had 3 children, my cousins. If anyone can help me make connections i'd be humbly appreciative for the help. My Grandfather had siblings ALBERT MESSENGER, ARLEATHA MESSENGER (she married ~ LEON STAGE I think)and HARRY MESSENGER. This is all I know. I am retired US NAVY and a "TRAVELING MAN". Any help will be very much appreciated.
