I have located Lydia Stoddard, age 69 in 1850, in the home of her son, Ivory Stoddard.They are in Newstead Twp., Erie Co., NY.
According to this census, she was born in Massachusetts and William, her husband, is deceased. Is this the same Lydia Bean as the Lydia you have listed here?Since her son is Ivory, I figure it probably is.
There is also a Francisco, female, age 22, born in NY listed in this home and a young William, age 1 . .all listed as stoddards.I am assuming that Francisco is probably Franchesca and that she is a widow of one of ivory's brothers or a sister to ivory.
This is not my family, but I am working on it for a friend. . . George Gary Stoddard.If you can help me any more, that would be greatly appreciated.
