Estella Saunders, the eldest daughter of Frank and Julia Horton Saunders, was born in Parma on September 13, 1870.

She appears to have had an illegitimate son, William aks "Willie", born about 1890. Nothing more is known of this son other than he appears in a family photograph of about 1908. It is possible that he is the William Wolpert mentioned in her death notice in 1920

Very little is known about Estella except that she married a Fred WOLPERT in about 1895.

In 1900 they were living in Mynder Street East, Seneca Falls, New York State where Fred was working as a machinist.

By 1904 they were in Rochester living at 88, Lake Avenue. Fred is shown in the City Directory of that year as a 'helper' at 330 Lyell Avenue. In 1907 they were at 180 Clifton Avenue were they were until Estella died. Most of this time Fred was working as a machinist again.

Estella died on the 25th April 1920 and was buried in Riverside Cemetery, Rochester, N.Y. with her parents in the family plot.
