Research Notes (Conflicts/Spelling/Followup)

FOLLOWUP

In 1993, Robert owned a half-interest in a property in "the Town of Salina (City of Liverpool) County of Onondaga, State of New York." Was this a childhood home, or a home in which he lived with his first wife? I'm inclined toward the latter. [estate-will-robert-oram-1993]
