Rust Family 1850 - 1980 New York

I'm looking for some further info re: the Rust family from Tribes Hill, NY.

Here's what I know:
Thomas (1828-1915) & Elizabeth Rust came to New York from England. Their oldest child, daughter Eliza, was born in England in 1851.

Their other children were born in NY and include:
Thomas Jr. born 1855
Fred born 1869
William born 1860

They were farmers and owned a large farm in Tribes Hill, NY.
The family owned the farm for more than 100 years from 1872 - 1980.

The last Rust family member who owned the farm was Elizabeth E. Rust (12/13/1907 - 08/1982) the daughter of Fred Rust. I believe that she was childless. She was known as the "Cat Lady" by residents in Tribes Hill.

I now own the old farmhouse. I'd love to get in contact with some of the descendents to get memories or photos of the old farm.
