I am a 2nd cousin, twice removed to Dora (Fayette) Conto (born: April 1888, died: Apruil 05, 1925 at the age of 37.
Dora was married to Joseph Conto (born: 1888, died: 1956).
When Dora died young at age 37, she and Joseph Conto had 8 children at the time, the eldest being only 13 years old born 1911 - 1912. This child's name is unknown. Of the eight children born to Joseph and Dora (Fayette) Conto I know only of the following:
1. unknown Conto, born 1911 - 1912
2. Agnes M. Conto, born: 1915, died: 1986
married Eli J. Deragon, born: 1912, died: 1972.
3. Albert G. Conto, born: February 18, 1920, a Radio Operator Gunner who died at Mothan Davis Field, in Tucson, Pima Co., AZ on April 12, 1943. He was married to Eva Blair.
These known family members are all buried in Notre Dame Cemetery, Andrus Street, Malone, Franklin Co., New York. Joseph and Dora and children lived in the Chasm Falls area of Malone, NY at least until her death in 1925. There are other Conto's buried in the Notre Dame Cemetery and other cemeteries in the area but no solid proof of connecting them to Joseph and Dora.
If anyone knows the names of all the remaining Conto children, I would appreciate it if you could pass these on to me along with any other data that you have on them (marriages, deaths, children, locations, etc.)
If anyone has info on any of these family members, particularly about the eight Joseph & Dora (Fayette) Conto children and their spouses and descendants, then, please, contact me through this forum. And if posssible PLEASE INCLUDE THE SOURCES of your information or let me know if you yourself are descended from any of them and how you are descended. Thank you.
