Creighton family of Geneva, NY. c. 1872-1959

I am interested in learning whatever I can about the family of JAMES CREIGHTON, YoB 1828 (County Fermenaugh, Ireland), DoD Nov. 11, 1910 (Geneva, NY). Creighton and his family came to the US around 1872, and settled in Geneva, NY, by at least 1890. The family resided at Jay St. starting 1890.

Wife: Mary Wiggins REYNOLD (1828 - Jan. 12, 1907). A widow who married James Creighton in 1857. She and James had at least four children, possibly six. The four children I can confirm are:

Daughter: Elizabeth (Creighton) PENDLE (1864 - 1900). Husband's name was Edward Pendle (1860 - 1928). They had at least one child, Mirabel L. (Pendle) RAND (1890 - 1974).

Daughter: Jennie H. CREIGHTON (1870 - May 20, 1905). Died in Geneva, NY after spending a year at Saranac Lake, NY, to "recover her health" (_Geneva Times_).

Daughter: Alicia CREIGHTON (1860 - 1925). Unmarried as of 1907, and perhaps never did marry.

Daughter: May E. (Creighton) GLANVILLE (1868 - 1959). Married George GLANVILLE c. 1895 (DoD Nov. 3, 1911). Apparently resided at Jay St. as a child, then again from 1913, after her husband's death, until 1957. She and George Glanville had at least one daughter, Mable Louise (Glanville) PENDELL, who resided in Irondequoit, NY.

Thanks in advance for any information/insights/anecdotes/etc. you can provide about this family or their progeny.
