http://ssdi.genealogy.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/ssdi.cgihttp://ssdi.genealogy.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/ssdi.cgi has one Almer, no Allens, no Elmers. The Almer's SSN was issued in Michigan. I used Google to find http://ftp.rootsweb.com/pub/usgenweb/mi/isabella/vitals/marriage/dbn-apr4-2003.txthttp://ftp.rootsweb.com/pub/usgenweb/mi/isabella/vitals/marriage/dbn-apr4-2003.txt which has this marriage record in Isabella County, Michigan: SERVOSS,ALMER A to COLE, ALZADA H, ISABELLA,,29 AUG 1886,---,---,---, so the SSDI Almer, b. 1887, is a son, nephew or coincidence. There are only 20 hits for Almer Servoss in Google. I didn't follow them all up because I wanted you to have some of the fun. If he married in 1886, chances are he was born within 5 years of 1866, assuming he led an ordinary life and it was a first marriage. http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Search/frameset_search.asp?PAGE=census/search_census.asphttp://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Search/frameset_search.asp?PAGE=census/search_census.asp has Allyn SERVOSS / New York Birth: <1854> N.Y. Elmer SERVICE / Michigan Birth: <1867> CAN Elmer SERVICE / Pennsylvania Birth: <1873> PA Elmer SERVISS / New York Birth: <1866> NY None of them look like exact fits. The 1854 one fits what you said about being born in NY, but he'd have to get out to Michigan pretty quick to marry in 1886 and he is older than normal. If "Alzada" is Harriett's first husband's name instead of middle name, and it was a second marriage for her, at least, the 1854 one looks darn good. I included the Elmers because not all census enumerators spelled perfectly. http://www.tedpack.org/begingen.htmlhttp://www.tedpack.org/begingen.html has some tips you could use, especially the page about grandfathers and the one about good posts.
