your family was from the Buffalo ny area?I am looking at an article from 11/6/1928 that says James E and Libby were married 50years then. They were married in 1878in Perry NY.Kind of south east of Buffalo,,i think. The article says he was 72 and she was 71, so he was born in 1858. My great grandfather would have been his brother Thomas was killed by the national guard in a Union organizing , I am not sure whaat year, but obviosly my garndmother was young. Thomas married Annaa Sullivan. I haven't worked much on my own side of the family. Looking at the times these folks were here I am wondering if any of their family may have served in the civil war.
