I am searching for information on my 3rd great grandmother, Eliza Whaling. I have the following entry which comes from 'Spoor family in America' showing that She married Richard Spoor abt. 1856, however it is more likely that they married between 1837-1850, in Phelps or Manchester NY, as that is when she first shows up with husband Richard in the Manchester Census, also posted below. Note the ages of the children, the oldest in 1850 being Henry, age 12. She died 1907 in Manchester, NY, and was buried at Riverview/Plainsville/Gypsum Cem, Phelps, Ontario Co. NY.
Any information that can help me add to what I know about Eliza would be greatly appreciated, as I know nothing about her parents or family at all. The birthplace of Sodus, Wayne Co., NY comes from a user page here at FTM and I do not have verification that proves it yet. Another spelling I have found for her name have been Elizabeth Whalen, though I believe Eliza Whaling to be the correct spelling.
