Thanks for taking the time to respond to my post. The info I have on Jacob and Katherine
came from Mary Helen's death cert. It lists her birthplace as Hudson, but that
doesn't jive with our family oral tradition. Also, I haven't been able to place
Jacob and Katherine there. I haven't had much time to search since receiving the
death cert., but as far as I can tell, neither the 1850 census, nor the 1860 shows them.
That 1855 census, would that be the New York Census? I thought that the census was only
taken in the years that end in 0. Another problem is that I am unsure of whether they had
other children. Mary Helen may have had a biological brother also taken in by the Moons,
but I don't have a name. The search continues--
Thanks again, Dawn
