Thanks so much for the quick reply. No, I do not have her dates, except her approximate
birth date from census records: she was born Oct., 1864.
From the little I know, it seems the family lost touch with Ida Mae
(Longley) Tripp, or maybe she lost touch with them? She was b. in either Wayne Co., NY, or
Cananda, married Nelson Trip 18 Dec., 1887, had two daughters, Minnie Myrtle and Gladys H.
Minnie Myrtle married a man named "Young."
Nelson Tripp died in Yates Co., NY and is buried at East Palmyra Cem., Wayne Co., NY. From
an old letter, I learned that the family lost touch with the Ida and the girls around
1923-24. I found Ida in the 1930 cen. in the Columbia Co. Alms House, Ghent, NY. After
that, I've found no further info on her or her daughters.
Assuming this is "my" Ida buried at Spencertown Cemetery, I am hoping to learn
her specific birth and death info and thereby have hope of tracking down her death
Thanks again for you kind consideration!
