Azubah Ann "Zuba" Mills Buckley-McQuiggin
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: 1838
Death: unknown
Steuben County
New York, USA

This was my great-great grandmother. Death date and place of burial unknown at this time.

Zuba (Ann?) Mills Buckley, daughter of Jabez C. Mills and Giddy.
Zuba and Joseph had four children, Elizabeth, Gertrude, James Brace, and Edward Leander (my great-grandfather). After Zuba and Joseph divorced, the two girls were put (admitted) to "Davenport Home for Girls" in Bath. this was done either by their mother, Zuba, or their grandfather, Jabez C. Mills. Zuba remarried James McQuiggin before the 1875 NY census and were divorced before the 1880 census: Both boys were listed as living with the couple in 1875 Urbana, and this is where the re-spelling of the last name happened.
I believe she had another son with James McQuiggin in 1875 named Arthur J. Mcquiggin.
James Brace Buckley (stepson to James McQuiggin) 11 yrs old
Edward Buckley (stepson to James McQuiggin) 4 yrs old

Betsy lived in Hammondsport before placement in the girls home, (The Mills house was in the Hammondsport area). She was admitted to the home on March 30, 1883 (18 years old if the dates are correct). She was released on May 2nd, 1889 (23 or 24 years old) if again, date is correct. Edward Leander (my great-grandfather)was living with the Ansil Carpenter family in 1880 during the census in Tyrone, NY, Schuyler county. He was listed as 8 years old at this time. My grandmother told her oldest daughter that Edward Leander was taken into a family named Carpenter after his own mother "deserted" the 4 children. Research shows James Brace ended up at 16 years old with the Elwood family.
