Evalina Nora (Barrett) Green born about December 5, 1875 in Moira or Madrid, New York State, daughter of Norman J. Barrett & Charlotte E. Barrett, died very young presumably (per family) in child birth at her sister LuLu’s house to her 2nd child a baby boy. Her only living child Lottie was adopted by Evalina’s parents. She is a mystery as we can’t seem to find her obituary or death record. We have her gravestone see the FAG LINK https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/131829959/evalina-nora-green. Evalina was married to William C. Green as we found the marriage record and newspaper clip of this union! Her only surviving daughter had 15 children with 14 surviving until adulthood! See her only daughter’s profile here https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Green-29797

6. Part of the Barrett one name study https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:New_York%2C_Barrett_Name_Study

7. Is there some way she could be added to the New York project Or a better category to shed more light on her profile. We could use all the help we can from the New York group?

The best sources I have found for upstate New York are the county historians. St Regis Falls is in Franklin County where I don't see a county historian per se but the Franklin County Historical & Museum Society appears to serve this function for Franklin County. And here is a list of the official historian contacts for each town and village in the county.
