The majority of "official" birth records in New York State begin about 1881, so unless you can locate a record of baptism or a family bible, you may find it difficult to document Almira's birth.
BUT, the good news is, if she died in 1908, you should be able to find a death certificate which might give a lot of information about her, depending on how much the informant knew.
If you know her exact place of death, you could write the town clerk directly to obtain a copy of the certificate. (There is a form to fill out and a fee.) If you don't know the exact place of death, you (or someone else) could check the microfiche index available in Albany (and in a library in Syracuse, I believe) and then request the certificate.
Here's a New York State Archives link you might want to check. Lots of great information there. http://www.archives.nysed.gov/holding/fact/genea-fa.htm
