    Notes 
    • She appears in the 1869 Buffalo City Directory as “Bisantz, Mary M. wid. h. Genesee n. toll-gate.”

      She is in the 1860 census, after her husband died, as the head of the household. With her are living Magdalena (21), Catherine (19), Mary Anna (15), Anthony (13), and Dominicus (11).

      This is confusing, as some of these names are not on the 1850 census; I’ve recorded them all.

      There are other Krafts buried at the French and German Cemetery; I just don’t know whether they are related or not:
