its really bugging me not knowing who Eleanor Thurber is related to..so did a little more digging and think i may have a lead...
i think i found Eleanors obituray...she had remarried after 1900 and was listed as Mrs. Eleanor Bendler.She was survived by Daniel and Edward Thurber, sons and a dau Mrs. Edward Arff(Elizabeth).she died in 1940 and is buried in Parkview Cemetery, Schenectady.
The obit says she was born in Glenville NY march 1, 1852.
i did a seach for any Eleanora / Nora born in Glenvillearound 1850 and there are about 4 family..First one i clicked on, Eleanore Cary, born 1849, her father's name is Talman Cary b. 1797.
Therefore i think Talman Thurber is the grandson of Talman Cary..
