Almira SMITH was born on January 6, 1811, in Saratoga, New York, the child of Amos. She married Benjamin Franklin BOSWORTH on January 12, 1832, in Buffalo, New York. They had one child during their marriage. She died as a young mother on December 9, 1834, in her hometown, at the age of 23.

Almira is one of my mystery ancestors. I want to know who her parents are. It is possible her first name was Amelia. She died of consumption so young, and with a child, it just tugs on my heartstrings.

Dr. Benjamin Franklin Bosworth was Almira’s husband.

I believe she was of the Methodist Episcopal faith. I would very much like to learn who Amelia’s parents were.
