Death of James ROE..... see attached
Note, whilst checking census I find that in 1860 census at Amesbury MA., Ellen ROE listed with children Mary and Henry but no husband/father in household, however, next door is a James ROE [blacksmith and born Ireland] listed with his wife Mary D. In the 1870 census Amesbury MA no James and Mary ROE but there is listed James and Ellen ROE with children Mary E. and Henry [this James ROE listed as blacksmith which seems to suggest he is the same James ROE as in the 1860 census]....... Wondering if there is a possibility that James ROE is not the father of Ellen's children ~ maybe Ellen was a widow in 1860 and James' wife Mary died so Ellen and James married? Could it be that Ellen had been married to James ROE's brother, as she was Ellen ROE?
Hmmmmm???? More digging required.
