52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks #17 Adrianna Bristol

Adrianna Bristol

Adrianna Mary Miller was born about 1852 in New York. The 1860 Federal Census lists an Adrianna Miller of the same age living in Flushing, Queens, New York. This may or may not be the same Adrianna. It is known that on January 25, 1871 she married Charles Brown Bristol in Lima, Livingston County, New York. State and Federal Censuses list her and Charles living in Lima in 1875 and 1880. Their daughter Jessie was born on October 8, 1871. William was born on September 29, 1873 and Mary on August 13, 1880.  For whatever the reason, Charles uprooted the family and moved to Grafton in the Dakota Territory in 1882. There he operated a gambling house. She died in Grafton on November 2, 1886. Her body was sent back to Honeoye Falls, New York for burial.

  1. Hi Arlene,
    I thought maybe you'd want to know, it's spelled "Honeoye Falls". =)
