A few years ago, 1993 to be exact, I contacted the Dufresne Funeral Home, Inc. in Cohoes (Albany County), New York in hopes of learing something about my DUFRESNE line that lived in Cohoes since the early 1900's.
Evelyn Dufresne at the Funeral Home was nice enough to copy all the Dufresne records that she couold find in their records. This covers a span of years from 1918 to 1976.
Although I was able to recognize a few of my relations in her list I never really identified any new "breakthrough" information. I came across Evelyn's letter in my files yesterday and thought of posting the contents here in hopes that it may be of help to others (especially if you others are able to connect back to my Dufresne line).
So here is the information from the Dufresne Funeral Home in Cohoes, New York:
