Peter Snay's Death Record

Several years ago, via snail mail, I sent a request to the New York State Archives Research Services requesting a death record for Sophia Snay in Franklin.  The years to be searched were 1900, 1901 and 1902.  The researcher sent a note back stating that she searched through 1903 and did not locate!

I had better luck for Sophia's husband, Peter Snay with my request at the NY Archives' search for 1899, 1900 and 1901 in Franklin Co.?.
