Robert J.(Sr) Appears in the 1870 NY census as being in Pleasant Valley, N.Y. After which he disappears.
Pleasant Valley Town Records were beleived to have been destroyed in a fire in the early 1920's? He appears in no later censuses. If anyone has some suggestions or knows the local cemeteries to Pleasant Valley that would be great.Some notation in my old notes say there is a Robert KEDNIE buried in Salt Point. But where?Thanks to all. Debby
