I am looking for information on "Frederick of Buffalo", whose mother, Gracie Ostrander died 1892 at 20 yrs old in Hunter NY. All I have been able to find on Frederick was a 1926 newspaper article stating that Mrs. William H. Farnsworth was a guest of her daughter Mrs. Frederick Benjamin at Buffalo. Any info appreciated
