On reverse: "Marilla Kellog, Honeoye Falls" is beautifully handwritten and hand signed in light and fancy old period pencil script. Photo type: Original Antique Victorian CDV or Carte de Visite Photograph. Photographer: Unmarked, Unknown.
Found in Public Genealogy Records:
Honeoye Falls is a small and quaint Victorian town south of Rochester, Monroe County, New York. We found Marilla and her extensive family in the Honeoye Falls Village Cemetery, Town of Mendon, New York. The family surname is spelled as Kellogg, not Kellog as it is handwritten on this photo reverse.
The 1870 census shows Marilla Kellogg as age 35 and her husband J. Frank Kellogg, a grain dealer, as age 37. They have 2 young children, Eddie Kellogg age 8, and Louise Kellogg, age 4, as well as a farmhand boarder named Winfield Burton, age 22. Marilla's maiden name is Burton, so it is assumed this is a relative.
Marilla's husband's full name was John Franklin Kellogg 1833–1871, son of Sylvester Kellogg. Her maiden name was Marilla Ehnina Burton, daughter of Asa Burton 1802-1871 and Elsey Richardson Burton 1810-1886.
Their 3 children were:
1. Edwin Burton Kellogg 1861-1940, known as E.B. Burton. He married Josephine Lotee Kellogg 1863-1917. Her parents were Amos Lotee 1835–1902 and Ann Eliza Booth Lotee 1843–1926. Her siblings were: Mary Elizabeth Lotee 1866–1916, Flora Emogene Lotee Briggs 1869–1954, E. Louese Lotee 1872–1927, Frances Lotee 1874–1958, Herbert Amos Lotee 1877–1954 and Bessie Lotee 1883–1949. Their children were Franklin Lotee Kellogg 1887–1954 and Dale Walter Kellogg 1891–1961
2. Statia Louise Kellogg, 1866-1953 1866-1953 also known as S. Louise Kellogg in census or simply later as Louise Kellogg and Louise K. Mills. (Statie is also a nickname for Anastasia, Statia) She was a teacher of music and voice at Canisteo Academy for 40 years. She married Dale Mills 1860-1892 in September of 1889. Dale Mills was the son of Alfred Mills 1825-1902 and Anna Mills 1830-1818 of Canisteo, Steuben, New York, born in 1860 in census records. He worked In a shoe factory in the 1880 census, and when they marry, the newspaper announces the marriage and him as "our popular young clothier" via the Hornellsville Weekly Tribune. Sadly, he dies in October 1891 at age 31, and is described as a "young business man of Canisteo." We was in business as "Davis & Mills" with partner Hart Davis 1856-1907. Louise then can be found living with his Canisteo Mills family with her baby Pauline, born 1891. It is noted that her brother Edwin's son is named Dale Kellogg in 1891. In the 1915 census, Louise K. Mills, age 49, lives with her daughter Pauline Mills, age 23 and Anna Mills age 84, her widowed mother in law. Her sister in law Mary Mills, age 59, also lives with them in Canisteo, NY. Mary Mills, born 1856, was the daughter of Anna and Alfred Mills. Louise remains a music teacher and her daughter Pauline is also a listed as a teacher, born 1891. We can see in census that Louise lived with her husband's parents and family and sister in law the rest of her years. Her daughter Pauline D. Mills, drops off the census, possibly marrying although we find a 1916 death certificate in Syracuse, Onondaga County NY for that name, although she may have married. Louise is buried in the Hillside Cemetery, Canisteo, Steuben County, New York. Any help or correction appreciated, email Debra here.
3. Ella Maud Kellogg, 1867-1868, died as an infant.
Marilla's husband died in 1871 and she remarried William Gibson Starr 1831–1897, then seen as Marilla Starr. She lived 1835-1922. Her 2nd husband W.G. Starr purchased the hardware business of the late H.O. Allen, (Howard O. Allen 1850-1880 who had a hardware business first in Rochester, then moved it to Honeoye Falls. He died at age 30. full name believed to be Henry Osborn Allen) WG Starr is buried with his wife in the Honeoye Falls Cemetery, Monroe County, New York.

Note: Hello from ~debra. I have spent years collecting over 10,000 ID’d lost family photos & paper from US flea markets & antique shops. I do the best gen research I can, but am always open to corrections. This is an original antique item, not a reprint. A new high quality rigid sleeve is included for extra protection, especially during shipping. You may buy a piece alone, or large intimate 300 dpi scans of the front and back sent immediately via email, or both. Please search carefully, as they are often found together and many may be related. I also invite you to join me at Ancestorville Genealogy on facebook. Thank you, enjoy! ~Debra Clifford (contact info on top bar)
