Sarah Weed Maloney Hawkins

Here is the death certificate for my great-grandmother, Sarah Weed Maloney Hawkins. She married my great-grandfather, Francis Gallery Maloney, in 1886 in Jackson Co., MI. After Francis died in 1872, she married John Hawkins in 1878. The certificate has just one interesting item in that it states that her father, Fellows Weed, was born in Syracuse, NY. I suspect that this is an error. Helmer family (related to the Weeds) note that Fellows was born in Hannibal, NY. Hannibal was in Onondaga County when Fellows was born in 1810. Today Hannibal is in Oswego County, NY.
