Still confusing.  My friend found a Myra Comstock in Buffalo in 1880 at the same time George Glenny was in Buffalo, but not married to 
each other and wonder if she went back to her maiden name before she married Myers.  However, Myra shows in no census from 1900-1930 which 
is odd.  But, Myra in Buffalo lists her mother's maiden name as Biggs.  Did you give me the name of Briggs as the maiden name for Phebe Bigelow?  This is a real mess to unravel and now I am wondering 
if she is the one afterall. I am pursuing the Lone Mountain Cemetery which could shed some light on the family.
