Thank you for the information. Frances Ellen Hyndman left the family and remarried in 1901 (claiming it was her first) and again in 1909. She died in 1950.
James Richard Gargan "appears" to have lived beyond 1900 IF a 1910 or 1920 census of Portland can confirm with dates. As I've dug deeper, the family certainly appeared to have split up in late 1900 or early 1901. I've been trying to find out if it was caused by separation or if James Richard Gargan died.
Thank you for the probate record on Dora.
