I'm so sorry but I don't get to the forums often enough. I don't have any siblings of Sylvia. But I do have her date of birth and death and location of death. Sylvia was born March 3, 1860 in Henderson, Jefferson, New York, I believe. She was married on September 14, 1881 to William ( Willis) Nutting, I think the marriage was in Henderson, New York. They had four children and then William died on April 5 1893, leaving Sylvia to raise four kids, the youngest only being 1 year old, she then remarried to George Washington Harkins and had another 7 children. Only three of them reached adulthood. And one of them is still living. My relationship is thru the first marriage. Sylvia died in South Bend, Indiana and is buried in Southlawn cemetery. I live in South Bend and have visited the grave. She would have been my great grandmother. Hope this information helps.
