Found! David C. and Amanda of Wayne Co NY
Posted by: Jane Curci (ID *****5058) Date: July 20, 2011 at 23:28:45
In Reply to: Edward, Anna Loretta RIGGS family in New York by Steven Thomas of 4090

Steve, I found the census records that prove the relationship (not to Edward, but David C.). The person who gave the information on the death certificate was unaware of the father's name.
