Addendum:  Died Oct. 10, 1940.

From Census research information, I deduct that she was born in 1865 in NY State. Her parents appear to be Sedrick and Mary Lamphere. In 1870, they lived in Middlefield, NY. Various census list her as born in Canada or NY.  Her father was listed as a Cooper. They had 2 children, Adelbert 8, and Martha 6 years old.  A Zalmon Lamphere aged 67 with his family, also listed as a cooper, lived in an adjoining household.  

In 1910, she was living in a household in Oneonta, it was stated she had lived there 5 years, married twice, had 4 children with 4 living. She was a servant in
the household.

In 1930, she lives in Butternuts with her brother Adelbert 67, their mother Mary J. Lamphere 85, and Martha 65, listed as a practical nurse. Mother and son are widowed, Martha is listed as married. Her first marriage was at age 16.

In 1940, she is living with her brother Adelbert 77, in Gilbertsville. She was 75. He was still listed as a carpenter.

No where do I find her with a husband or with children.
