Edwin Dey Downs, DDS born 1852 Havana, NY

Classification: Query
My great, great grandfather Edwin Dey Downs was born in Havana, NY (now Montour Falls) in 1852. He graduated from Philadelphia College in 1882 and practiced dentistry in Owego, Tioga County, NY until his death on November 25, 1915. His obituary in the Dental Cosmos mentions that he is a direct descendant of Myles Standish. I am attempting to confirm his parents who I believe were Edwin H. Downs and Abbey S ??? I have reason to believe that Abbey may have been a “Leach” of Tioga County New York but have no definite source. My father and his father were both named Merle Leach Downs. Any assistance would be welcome.
