Looking for Wm. Hall family in Watkins Glen, New York
My great grandmother lived in Elmira, NY and died in 1940 in Elmira-Helen Elizabeth Hall Cowger. Her death certificate listed her father as Wm. Hall born in Watkins, Glen, NY, and her mother as Annie Runcepaugh [Rulapaugh] birthplace unknown.
Helen was born January 1, 1877, in Watkins Glen, NY. From 1900 to 1925 she is listed in census as Nellie E. Cowger. 1930 and later as Helen E. Cowger.
I am trying to find her family of origin. There are too many William Halls in the area and I don't have a middle name or initial.
Later there are several Rulapaughs in the Elmira City directories.
I know Helen's parents were not together by 1880. Helen had at least one step-sister after 1900.
