  1. New York, New York City Births, 1846-1909, Gazlay, female, born: 13 March 1867 in Manhattan, New York, New York; father: David M. Gazlay, born in NY; mother: Mary M. Jennings, born in NY.
  2. U.S. Federal Census, 1870, Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, District No. 30, Page No. 15, family of David Gaylay [sic] (30); Mary Gaylay (25); Carrie (1); Monte (5).
  3. U.S. Federal Census, 1880, New York, Rensselaer County, Nassau, Enumeration District 176, Page No. 12, family of Stephen Hollas (53, Mass., farmer); wife Lavantia Hollas (53, New York); daughter Aurelia Hollas (26, New York, makes collars); mother Caroline H. Hollas (81, Mass., widow); Carrie Gazlay (12, New York). Carrie is a step-niece of Lavantia through Carrie’s grandmother, Martha (nee ?) Coons, and her then-husband, Abram Coons, i.e., Lavantia and Abram are siblings. This Hollas family is living near Abram and Martha Coons.
  4. U.S. Federal Census, 1900, New York, Kings County, Brooklyn, Enumeration District 534, Sheet No. 6B, family of Samuel J. Hamilton (38, Ireland, Apr 1862, printer); wife of 15 years Carrie A. Hamilton (31, New York, Mar 1869, no children).
  5. U.S. Federal Census, 1910, New York, Albany County, Albany, Enumeration District 71, Sheet No. 1B, family of Mary M. Gazlay (60, New York, widow, 2 children, 1 living); daughter Carrie A. Hamilton (44, New York, widow, no children, dressmaker). They were living at 33 Chestnut Street; compare with 1920 census for “Mary Hamilton.”
  6. U.S. Federal Census, 1920, New York, Albany County, Albany, Enumeration District 73, Sheet No. 3B, family of Mary [sic] Hamilton (52, New York, widow); lodger James Smith (49, New York, architect, buildings). They are living at 33 Chestnut St., the same address that Carrie A. Hamilton lived at in 1910. Therefore, it is believed that this is the same person and that the first name is incorrect here.
  7. New York State Census, 1915, Albany County, Albany, Enumeration District 3, Page No. 9, family of Mary M. Gazlay (57); daughter Carrie Hamilton (38). [Both of their ages are low by several years compared with other records.]

  9. Albany Evening Journal, Albany, New York, 15 July 1922, notice to creditors for Carrie A. Hamilton [the presumption being that she died before that date].
