I'm am just beginning research on a Joseph DeKay (b.1851 -d.1912 in Little Meadows, PA) married to Nora Gould (b.1868 -d.1954 in Little Meadows, PA). They had two daughters, Christine Dekay (b.1890 -d.1974) [married to Francis Boland] and Hazel DeKay (b.1895 - d.1985) (my g-grandmother) who married Martin Monroe.
Christine DeKay Boland lived in a large home on upper Front Street, Binghamton, NY. The house was given to charity and now exists as the Elisabeth Manor Nursing Home.
The only data I have on Joseph DeKay at this time is that he had two sisters who married men from New York City.
Is anyone researching DeKay families from Pennsylvania/New York?
