Would like to hear from anyone that might know this last name. I have not been able to find on the census. Could be several variations of spelling. My grandmother was suppose to be a Perkstaff. On her daughters death certificate it said her mothers maiden name was Laura Perkstaff.
On her sons death certificate it says her name was Laura Caswell. I need help. At this point I would just like to hear from anyone that carrys the name Perkstaff or knows anyone that does. Under her married name of Gifford she was the executrix of a John Pruxtorph's will in Warren co., NY, in about 1820. Cannot find the will.
