Classification: Query
Surnames: Ryan
Hi, I have hit a dead end with this woman. She is my husband's paternal great grandmother. Her first husband was a William L Hodgkins, I have verification of this. My FIl, Eugene McClay swears her name was Grammy Ryan when she died..and that she ran a boarding house /hotel.
I have found her as Isabel Ryan in the 1940 census:

This age adds up perfectly.

I am trying to find an obit or a newspaper blurb for when she died. She still had living children. I am going to try to get a copy of her death cert, but it is TOUGH in Maine!

I have posted before about this and just hope someone can help me find this info....thanking you in advance...
