Peter Millage Maria Chemung/Tompkins, NY

I am looking for Peter and Maria Millage. Peter Millage was living in Chemung County, NY in 1840. In 1850, he was living in Newfield, Tompkins, NY. These are their children:

Hannah Ann b. Jan 1832,d. 29 Mar 1857, burial: Cutter Cemetery, Newfield, Tompkins, NY ( she is buried with a Solomon, John H, and Caty Millage)

Sally M b. abt 1835

Mary Jane b. 5 Aug 1837 New York, married George Van Buskirk 31 Aug 1853, Dec 1917 Cedar County, Missouri.

Lydia R b. abt 1841

Lewy or Lewis J abt 1844

Betsey E b. abt 1847

Letty or Libby A b. abt 1849

Maria was a widow by 1860 with only Betsey E and Libby A. Millage at home. This is according to the 1860 Newfield, Tompkins, NY census. By 1870, she was living in Van Etten, Chemung, NY and may be buried in Ennis Cemetery. Maria died in April of 1882 according to her cemetery transcription.

On the 1870 Van Etten, Chemung, NY census, this is who Maria was living with:

J.M. Bush
Albert Chafer
Amadell Chafer

Amadell was born in 1849 and is the same age as Maria's daughter: Libby A Millage. The intial A may stand for Amadell. Amadell may be Maria's daughter which would explain why Maria was living with Albert and Amadell Chafer.

Peter Millage was born abt 1806 in Pennsylvania according to the 1850 census. Maria's maiden name could be Collins according to Her parents could be John and Hannah Collins.

John Collins died 21 Sep 1852 at the age of 66y 27d and is buried in Knettles Cemetery, Newfield, Tompkins, NY. His wife Hannah died 9 Apr 1851 at the age of 63y 3m and is buried in the same place. Their daughter, Cuziah, died 9 Sep 1853 at the age of 22y 4m and is burried in Knettles Cemetery as well.

Any further information on the Millages and Collins will help me out tremendously!!
