By any chance did Emma have a brother named Amida or Amidy Volin also of Pittsfield. He is my great great grandfather and according to his obiturary he had a sister Mrs. Viner that survived him. I am trying to find information on his family and believe that these two may be connected. I don't know his place of birth but I do know that he resided on Howard Street In Pittsfield and was a blacksmith by trade. His parents were Louis Volin and Celeste Ferdette.
