Today’s deed shows an expansion of the homestead property in Stockton.
I have been searching for Layton & Marleah in census records prior to the 1875 NY State Census. I had no luck searching on the family name Kanistanaux. I decided to try just “Marleah” in an 1870 census search. I was surprised and very pleased to find a possible candidate.

When Isaac Kanistanaux died in 1920, his death notice suggested he was survived by a sister “Dr. Lee Onetto of Allegany”. It took a bit of creative searching but I eventually found her.

Today I will introduce the first of the 1892 NY State Census Records that relate to the Kanistanaux family. Oh what a nice surprise I found here. Since there is no 1890 U.S. Census available, once again the state census proves to be of great benefit.
Today I will be looking at a memorial page on Find-A-Grave. People seldom think of headstones as historical documents, but they do qualify as documentation.
