EARLS - My grandfather, Charles Earls, born l858, and grandmother, Margarett (Cronix), born l854, are both listed on the l880 census for Middleburgh, with their 3 eldest daughters. Also listed on the same page is William Earls, Charles's brother. I believe they are sons of William and Jane Earls shown on the l850 census for the same area. Charles died l899 according to the family records but I can find no evidence of that fact. Margaret died in Schenectady, in l930, while living with her daughter, Blanche, my mother.
