      Tailor. Most of this family's records were destroyed in a March 1923 hou se fire in Friendship,NY. According to the 1992 Pelton Book, Louis was bo rn in Holmesville, Chenango, NY rather than Belfast, Allegany, NY as we re his siblings. Reportedly Louis had a cousin who was a physician buri ed in Wellsville, NY who never married. According to the story, the doct or once sneezed in shurch and his false teeth flew into the pulpit.
