Re: William & Albert Flandreaus

In Reply to: John and Jane Flandreau by Mary Andrews of 136

There are an awful lot of carriage makers amongst the Flandreaus. Some text I was reading commented that there were four carriage makers in Westchester county in the 1880's. At least two, and possibly all four, were Flandreaus, judging from the census records of the period.

From the directories of New York City, I feel fairly sure that William was the father of both William Jr (obv) and Albert B. Flandreau. Here are their directory entries:

There are a couple of census entries that I think I can match up to the Williams which might be useful, if anyone is curious about this set of Flandreaus.
