Minerva E. White is my 2nd great grandmother. Her daughter Josephine (George Riley Starks youngest sister) married Charles L. Corlew and their daughter Nancy M. Corlew married Perley L. Spafford, my paternal great grandfather. These Starks and Corlews are from Fort Ann, New York.
I am looking for any information on Benjamin Stark and his wife Minerva E. White Stark. I have a death certificate for their son,
George Riley Stark, but I can not locate anything on them. At this point, I don't know where to turn.
