Rutland VT looked like a possibility because it is so close to Troy NY

Folks tended to stay in the same neighborhood
I believe your family was on Hill Street, 4th Street and 5th Street?

Sometimes the census taker, the person filling out the ship manifrest, or our family got it wrong :wink:
Sometimes streets and avenues changed names over time
