Anne and Eliza Kelly - Adams, New York

Two of John and Polly Minchin Kelly's daughters never married and I learned very little about them. From William Minchin's journal:
6. Anne born 1832 died Adams village NY (about 1853) never married.

8. Eliza born 1838 died in Adams, NY was never married
On the 1855 New York State census I have not found Anne in Adams, NY. Eliza is listed with her parents, age 14 b Ireland, resident 4 years. So she must have immigrated with her mother and siblings in 1851.

I have found no other record of Eliza. 

The only other mention of Anne that I have found is the 1870 census which conflicts with a death in 1853 as mentioned in William Minchin's journal. Adams, Jefferson, New York, page 53, dwelling 496, family 512. (The next house is her brother, Michael.)

  • Wallace Seton, age 24 b NY; works in factory

Could this be Anne?

Had a minute thought you might not have seen the new posting on Familysearchlabs. It has been a boon to me lately.

Have you been watching Who Do You Think You Are? We've got the US episodes on the BBC here now and it was Sarah Jessica Parker the other night... She had an ancestor who they originally though had died one year, but was found in the census the next.
