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...

My Grandmother was Phinadis Hodgkins, Isabelle's daughter. I live not far from the brick boarding house that Belle Ryan (as she was known locally) ran in Canton. My
Grandmother told me that when she (Phinadis) was a girl, Belle Hodgkins was a cook in a logging camp in Rockwood, and there is census evidence that this is true.
I am seeking more information about James and Margaret, Isabelle's parents. All I have found so far is the 1880 census.
Good luck with your search!
