Ethel Elizabeth Boyer was born on December 3, 1917 in Buffalo New York. She was the daughter of George M and Mabel (Pomeroy) Boyer. George and Mabel had four children; Mabel (1915), Melvin (1917), Ethel (1917), Donald (1920). George was an Engine Machanic for an Areoplane company in Buffalo, New York.
George and Mabel Boyer are found in the 1925 New York State census. She is seven years old. Ester and Melvin are listed also and they are ten and nine respectively.
By the time of the 1930 Federal Census, George and Mabel have three children, M Ester who is seventeen, Melvin who is fourteen and Ethel who is twelve. Donald must have died. George is a Mill Wright for an engine company.
“ In the 1940 Federal Census, Ethel is still living at home. She is single and 22 years of age. She lists her occupation as Sales Lady. On December 9, 1948 Ethel married George MacAluso in Buffalo, New York.
In a 1951 Buffalo, New York Directory, there is an entry for Mrs Ethel MacAluso . It states that she is clerk for Allen Carpet Cleaning at 566 Fargo Avenue.
George and Ethel had two sons; Steven and Donald.

Fourteen years ago, Ethel died in Liverpool, New York at the age of eighty-nine. It is unknown as of this time where she is buried but someone has put an entry in Findagrave for her. When I can find where she is buried, I will update this page.
Rest in peace, Ethel,
