Salina Drollett b.1858 Clinton Co. NY-parents from Canada-who were they?

+2 votes
Salina Drollett had a 6 yr old dtr , Emma, when she married james comstock in 1893 in new york. my grandmother was her daughter, mary amelia comstock b. 1897 in saranac area of ny. census records say salina's parents were born in canada. but who were they? what were their names. what is salina's birth day and month? where is she buried, in what cemetary ? where is her husband james buried? what cemetary? they both died in  ny. i found a 28 year old salina drollett in an almshouse in clinton co. in 1887. was that her? is that where she got pregnant w/ her daughter or did she go there because she was unmarried and pregnant?  the daughter ,emma, had the last name comstock on later 1890's census reports. a census notes that salina could not read or write which accounts for the various misspellings of her last name. i've seen it listed as  salina, selina, celina  , drowlette, drolet,draulette. i thought my grandma mary comstock williams said her mother was married once before she married my great grandfather james comstock  in 1893, but that  could have been told to cover up her daughter being born outside of marriage, emma comstock.
