Have been trying for awhile to track down the parents of Martha (Mattie) A. Blackwood. She was born in New York in Oct 1870 and married Joseph S. LaRue of Charlton about 1887.
Census leads me to believe she is the daughter of George N. Blackwood (b. abt 1832) and Abigail of Hadley (Saratoga County), Stoney Creek and then Luzerne. George appears to be the son of Henry and Rebecca.
After Joseph LaRue died in 1926, Mattie may have married John A. Barrie.
Is anyone else researching this family? Would appreciate any ideas.
