This entry from Landmarks of Wayne County NY pub. 1895 Syracuse NY:
" DOOLITTLE, Miss Franc, born at Butler in 1846, is the dau. of the late George Doolittle, who was at various times in his life recipient of political honors, holding the offices of assessor, justice and supervisor. His wife, Thankful, left three daughters , of whom Franc is the youngest. Educated at Leavenworth Institute, she first engaged in business with an elder sister in Howell, Mich., spending 13 years there. In 1883 she came to Wolcott and established a millinery business at No. 51 E. Main St, where she now employs five assistants, and besides a large local business, shipping finished goods to the far west."
Anyone have more info on this family? Butler and Wolcott are neighboring towns now in Wayne Co (previously Seneca Co)NY.
