I found her in 1860 Albany County, West Troy, 2nd ward, page 96:
Whipple, Margaret J., 34, Flint Dealer, value of personal estate $700
Helena, 18, Tailoress
Daniel S., 13
all born in NY
Able wasn't with them, so he may be with the grandparents, or apprenticed
somewhere and with a different family.
There is also another female person at the bottom of the page that I can't
read, age 44. I'll see if I can find it on ancestry.
Will look for the Dorris family next.
If I can't get the image to send by email, I can snail mail it to you.
