I'd be delighted. I appreciate any help and/or ideas.

I also included the 1875 NY Census. Wasn't sure what was best - so I attached the obit (it was the Eagle, May 6th 1883) and the 1875 census and put in links for the 1870 and 1880.

The census taker in 1880 didn't do a good job. Said they. were both born in Ireland and spelled their names wrong. I think he even spelled blacksmith incorrectly.

The 1870 census taker wrote down Martha instead of Margaret. Not sure if that is significant or just an error but it hasn't led me anywhere yet.
