I found William Burnell, born about 1842 in England, living with his daughter, Geneva Burnell Francisco, wife of Robert z. Francisco. He was a widower, but his wife on earlier censuses was Lucinda, born in NY.
They were in Madison Co., NY.
Geneva and her husband moved to Onondaga Co., NY, but in the SSDI, it showed she returned to Madison Co.

"GENEVA FRANCISCO 14 Feb 1888 Jan 1972 13334 (Eaton, Madison, NY) (none specified) 112-14-9242"

I have a copy of a handwritten letter from Geneva asking about her grandfather in law's civil war pension (William Taylor Francisco) and would very much like to learn more about her. I know she had 2 children: Irene who married Alvin Sternberg and Bernice who married an unknown Barnett.
The Sternbers remained in Onondaga Co. I don't know where Bernice went.

Is there a Kind Soul who could check Geneva's obituary in Jan. 1972?
