I am looking for any information about Albion, particularly of the late 1800s. My great grandfather, Charles A. Heady
married Helen Caroline Herrick, daughter of Hezekiah Beecher Herrick, in 1880. The 1880 census shows Mark Beecher, 73, living in the Herrick household. Charles was a wheelwright, a sort of carpenter who specialized in fixing wagons and carriages. He owned a livery stable from around the 1890s to the 1920s.
He built a house at 38 N. Clinton Street, and his family
grew up there (sons Homer and Burr, and a daughter whose name I don't actually know). His son Burr grew up there and had a family. Burr married Eula Loraine Gill, whose parents were the Porter Gills of Rochester, and whose parents were named
At 27 N. Clinton Street lived a friend and neighbor, Mrs.
Frank Clark, who had a son named F. Scott.
I put a wedding photo of Charles and Helen's on a webpage
with some narrative about their story. Anybody have any
information about them or about Albion in that era?
When, for instance did Albion get electricity and phone
