It seems I should drop my Delia Laraby down here also.She's as lost as everyone elses Laraby.
I know what was written on her death certificate.It states that she was born Philadephia PA.Although I have seen other documents that state she was born in Belmont NY.Her date of birth has always been given as 21 Mar 1877.Her death certificate states that she is white but you can tell by looking at her that she is of Native American decent, there is certainly no denying that.
She was married to William A Prosser.Delia had a sister Mary that was married to Edward Gonyou and a brother Adolph all of which drifted down from St. Lawrence and/or Jefferson County with my Prosser family to Syracuse, Onondaga County.Where Adolph (or Adolf) went from there I have no idea.He completely disappears off the face of the map.Mary and her immediate family as well as Delia and most of her extended family are still all here.
Where these three Laraby/Larabee/Larrabee's came from is a total mystery.When G Grandmother Delia died my grand aunt inserted Delia's in-laws names into the place holder where Delia's mother and father's names were supposed to go.
I'm hoping Mary's death certificate will have better information when I can get it.
Anyway, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.(for now anyway.LOL Only time will tell how much it will change.)
