I have a great-grandmother Eliza A. Cole (Colwes) who was born in Warren County and I have been trying to find her parents.  I have attached a word file showing the censuses she was listed on in the years 1855, 1860, 1865, and 1870.  On the 1855 New York State census "Liza Cole" is listed as a child along with Charles, with Emily as the Head of Family, however on the 1865 New York State census, "Eliza Cowles" is listed as a niece with Charles as head of household and Emily listed as Mother.
I am trying to find out who Eliza's parents are.  She married my grandfather, William Cauklin Knapp in March 1873.  I will forever be indebted to you if you can help me.  Thank you so very much.
