Ruth Foss b. 15 Apr 1832

Hello fellow Genealogy Researchers! I am hoping to find out anything possible, including family to Ruth. According to the 1850 Census, she was born 1832, Single, 18 years of age, Washington County, Machias Maine. Daughter of Joseph and Sarah Foss. She is my 2nd Great Grand Aunt. Her brother, Chauncey Whitney Foss is my 2nd Great Grandfather (1836-1903)

Un-Sourced information I have is that she married a Stephen Elwell before 1860 in the same area. A Ruth Elwell is listed 28 years of age, Married, 1860 Census Washington County, Machias Maine. Several children with the oldest Stephen Ellwell born in 1851. 1870 Census does not show husband Stephen, he either passed or left? This Census does show a Stephen, age 1 in the house. I have not found any 1880 census. My last Un-Sourced info is that she died in North Dakota 1890.

Thank You in Advance for any assistance.
