Francis family from New York

I am looking for the family of William Francis and Hannah Davis. They lived in and around the Hempstead area. From what I have so far is as follows:

Hannah died sometime after 1870. Not sure about William. I know of one child that they had and that is Isaac. I have found a possible match to Hannah in the 1850 and 1860 census but cannot confirm for sure.

Isaac married Fanny Wanser before 1840.

They had the following children:
Adalaide, Joseph, Phoebe, Matilda, James, Mary Ann, Isaac J., Jeremiah and possibly a Mary E.

My line goes from Jeremiah (often called Jerry). Jeremiah married a Carolyn (or Katherine) Nafie. Jeremiah from what family lore states took off sometime after 1910. Carolyn (sometimes called Carrie or Katherine) died between 1935-1940.

If anyone has any information to help me on this line Please let me know as I have been banging my head against a wall for some time.

I live in Western PA so it is hard for me to get to NY to look.
