This Flora seems to be a New Yorker. On the 1880 census for St. Charles (IL), she is a dressmaker who is boarding with a family named Roche. In 1900+ Michigan censuses (with husband Thompson), she is always stated as having been born in NY although she isn't consistent about the birthplace of her father (sometimes she says Canada and sometimes France). She narrows in her own birthplace on the 1903 death certificate of her son in Michigan: her maident name as "Bauford" (?) and her birthplace is Rochester, NY.
