She died April 1967, last residing in Castile, Wyoming Co., NY (SSDI).  According to her grandson Larry Colton she was buried in a cemetery in or near Castile. The 1900 and 1910 Census list her as born abt 1893, but the 1920 and 1930 Census list her as born abt 1897, the same as her husband. It appears that she was 5 years older than her husband Frank Michael and the Census info was given wrong, perhaps by design.

In 1900, she lived in Burns, NY with her sister Clara, father James Lee, and his 2d wife, Elizabeth. At the time Elizabeth was just 17, Clara 9, and Frances 7. In 1910, she lived in Burns, NY with her father, stepmother and 5 children of James and Elizabeth.
