Hello Denise, I just started researching the Light family whose descendants are living in Albany, NY for the most part.

1920 Census has of the family: Zoel Light age 46 born Canada Parents Canada
wife Mary age 61 (sic) born NY Parents Canada, with family is his widowed mother "Lucina Light" age 76 born Canada. Saratoga, NY

By 1930 in Schaghticoke, Rensselaer Co. NY have Mary Light age 71 now alone with two of the children and her mother in law now listed as Lucina Monette age 90. Lucina born Canada (French). Parents Canada (French)

Have found earlier censuses with a John Monett (sic) and John Monnette both with a wife Lucy both from Canada (French); 1900 John and Lucy Monett both Canada French living in Clinton County NY, but ages too old 80 and 81. 1905 John and Lucy Monnette in Saratoga, Saratoga Co. NY. and 1910 John Monett and wife Lucena in Saratoga, Saratoga, NY both born Canada.

Does any of this sound familiar? Thanks Sue
