|Betty Toromino||Polly Crandall|
Polly was mother to my great great grandfather, Amos Crandall. I was brought up in Berlin, NY. My maiden name is Yerton, grandparents Gilbert & Ada (Bly) Yerton. I am looking for any other info about Polly, including her parents names. Thank you for your help.
I've been researching my ancestry and saw you were from Troy, NY. Are you possibly a descendant of Agnes E. Rowland-Hoffay? I am trying to put together as complete of a family tree as possible. If you have any relation and could possibly send me family names and such it would be much appreciated.
