Loretta Smeaton b 1852 NY d 1924 Schnectady NY; fa: John; mo: Sarah; bro: James

I have been trying for years (on and off) to find origin of a Loretta Smeaton, born 4-11-1852 in NY, died 12-24-1924 in Schnectady; father was John Smeaton, motherís first name Sarah. Her background was said to have been Scot. She was Presbyterian, but several members of the family around that time and earlier were Quakers, and that may have been in her background.

She had a brother James Smeaton who had moved to northern Wisconsin (was a successful lumberman, biography and home listed in several history books). They never had children; I know they wanted them as they tried to adopt children of other members of their family, donít know if they were eventually successful.

The Smeatons in our family appear to have daughtered out.

Any info on Loretta or her parents (John and Sarah)?
