Hi. I'm not related to this family. I found an obit for Wallace Cannon Doremus at

The Herald Statesman (Yonkers, NY) - Mon, July 8, 1940 - Wallace Cannon Doremus - DOBBS FERRY - Stricken with a heart attach yesterday morning, Wallace Cannon Doremus, 64, died in his home at 78 Southlawn Ave., Riverview Manor.
He was born n Irvington on May 4, 1876, a son of the late Chester R. Doremus, who was a carriage builder, and Mary E. Cannon.
Mr. Doremus was connected with the sales and promotion division of the National Lead Company. Before moving to Dobbs Ferry in 1934, he had lived n Hastings and New York City.
...burial.. in Evergreen Cemetery, Brooklyn. Mr. Doremus is survived by his wife, Signa Bowman Cannon, and two brothers, Joseph of Yonkers and Roswell of Midland Park, NJ.
