Hello Carmen:     This is a story ,befitting being a novel.First of all ALda is Aida.

Aida born abt 1919, 1925 New York census says birth USA. Her Dad Leon Millard

Mother Etta E. Millard,sister Edith J.,Brother Erwin C. O years old. Living in Junius

Seneca,New York.Then in U.S. City Directories 1821-1989,She is listed as a

Nurse,Living Rochester,New York,and she is only 16 years old.In 1920 census

her age 9 months 12 days old.Now too 1940 census,at age 21 shows she is

married living with her father.Show she finished High School.She is married

but no husband there.Where is he,pehaps in Military,perhaps died?Where are

children if she has any.Yes indeed she has by now she has two children.Where

are they ,in the 1940 Census there in Pennsylvania ??? They are found living

with Howard Chilson and his 2 children.And yes,he is listed as Grandfather.

Hugh!!! Grandfather ???. Duane Ames 2 months old,Howard 2 years old.,who

is taking car af baby Howard.Why is mom in New York,her 2 young children in

Pennsylvania.This begs the question why did she leave children in Pennsylvania.

There could be someone alive that knows the answers to these questions.So there you are.You still do not know who her husband was.But guess what ,now

you are even more puzzled.To top it off i have a picture of  Duane Ames when in

the first grade,a fine looking lad.

Wayne, thank you for your time in searching this, it is very time consuming, I know!  Now allow me to put a few details in perspective so it makes more sense.  The mothers name is ALDA, I know this because she was my living father in laws mother, he does know her name (LOL). Her first census report is in the 1920 one as Alda G Millard age 0.  The nurse issue baffled me also, how can anyone be a nurse at age 16!?!? Now, on to 1940, the biggest problem here is that the person taking the census put 4 names at the end of page 32 and then on the top of page 33 is the rest of the same household.  Note that all 9 of these people were living in house number 50 on West Elizabeth Street in Waterloo, Seneca, New York : Leon Millard age 57 (father of Alda, his home), Alda (spelt Aida, but look at original book and you can tell it is a mistyped name, age 21) Elmer Millard and Iola Milard (siblings of Alda) [next page] Howard Chilson age 39 (he is a widow, first wife died 9 March 1938 in PA) William and Beverly are Howards children, then Duane and Howard are the grandsons of Leon (Leon is the head, it is his home) I found a Roscoe Ames in the Auburn State Prison in 1940 census, I wonder if he is the one???

attention wayne morgan I see you commented on duane roscoe ames he is my half brother our father was Alby Roscoe Ames you said you have a pictures of him when he was in 1st grade I would very much like to have a copy of that picture if you dont mine

ALBY ROSCOE AMES 1912-1961, son of George Clinton and Florence Ames, was the father of those three boys, perhaps, but he was in the Auburn State Prison in Auburn, Cayuga, New York during that time.  So it all depends on if they had cojugal visits.

To Kim, Wayne, and Ester,

  After much research, I have concluded that my father-in-law's (Ronald) dad was Howard Chilson.  Ronald was given the Ames name at birth because Alda was not yet married to Howard, but she was married to Alby Ames, If I had your personal email addresses I would gladly share the family tree with you. I quit working on it once I discovered the truth, and worked on the Chilson tree more. email me directly at cchilson@gmail.com
