- 1870: not found.. Note for consideration: The 1870 Census for Yorkshire, Cattaraugus, NY does show a "Mary" living in the household of "Cyrus" and Issabinda Whitney, though they had no child by that name and their other children are identified correctly. "Mary" is enumerated as age 24 - which is consistent with Marion Eugene's age in 1870. Not only was Silas incorrectly enumerated as Cyrus, I propose that the enumerator made another error and heard "Marion" as "Mary" and assumed/assigned the gender as female, but that this is actually Marion Eugene.
