Howdy Colleen, It has been my experience that if I slowly build a persons profile that I can narrow the search for them & sources for their lives. 

 For instance: Buffalo, NY = Buffalo, Erie County, New York, USA.

Now I can also use the County as a search tool. 

There are many Free New York places to search in Kitty's Library page: http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Kitty%27s_Library .

Hi Colleen, I'm from Buffalo NY and my Great grandfather was James F Austin who passed away in 1955 in Buffalo NY. His father was James C Austin who passed away 1912 in Buffalo NY.
My grand mother was laura noble from Canada

They were married and had two children

Do you know how old he was when he died
James F died Dec 16, 1955 and was married to a May Simon. His father James C Austin was born 1842-1912 and was married to Anna J Maischoss. Their children were Anna F., Irene, Raymond T, James F., Louise A., Helen A., and Gertrude A.

Raymond married Irene Dinley, James F Married  May Simon, Louise A married John Dinley, Helen A, married Edward Smith, and Gertrude A married William Nicklis.

Thinking that it might not be any of the James Austin from my line from Buffalo NY.
