I noticed that several members of Bump family died on the same day in 1941 and was wondering if anyone knows what might have happened in Aurora, Cayuga, New York State in that year

My family helped establish Aurora from its earliest days having a continuous line of direct descendants there from 1793 to present. I know a great deal of the history of the village and its residents. If I can be of help, please let me know.

By the way, my grandfather was instrumental in saving the Aurora Inn/Wayside Inn that is mentioned in the article above about the fire.
