On the 1910 census in Cicero there is only one Ella b. within 2 years of 1894. She is listed as Ella Orman, age 15, adopted daughter of Elton R. & Emma Orman. Elton is 48 & a farmer. Emma is also age 48 & is listed as having had no children. Elton`s mother Angelia, 68, is also living with the Ormans.

The 1900 census in Cicero shows Manning & Olive Smith with
children Glen,7, Ella, 5, Hobart, 3 & May, 1.

There are quite a few mentions of Ella Andrus in the old newspapers at They are mostly in the Wolcott Lake Shore News. Also an obit for her husband Leslie Andrus. There are also two social items about Manning Smith`s marriages to Olive Hacket & Rosa Washburn. The first is in the Baldwinsville Gazette & the second in the Syracuse Post-Standard. Search "Ella Andrus" (with the quotes)using the exact phrase search & for "Manning Smith" + Cicero using the all of the words search option.
