What do you already know? What do you want to find out?

Let's add those dates of birth:
Jane born about 1834 in Ontario per 1895 MN census.
William born about 1823 in England per 1895 MN census.
Living in Sauk Centre, Stearns County, Minnesota in 1895.

In 1940 US Census a person named Ben H Boulton of the right age and born in Minnesota lived in El Paso at 3608 Douglas Street (El Paso County, Texas) with wife Margaret and young daughter Barbara E. Their residence in 1935 is listed as San Francisco, although they appear to be in El Paso in 1930 census. Daughter Dorothy J. Boulton seems to be born in San Francisco per California Birth Index on Ancestry.com.

USGWARCHIVES.NET lists a Benjamin Hadley Boulton who had a daughter with [spouse] Margaret Biggs in El Paso - daughter Barbara Ellen Boulton.

From Masonic Lodge Cemetery list (part of Concordia Cemetery in El Paso) on RootsWeb:
BOULTON, Benjamin H born 1883 died 1944 buried Dec. 19, 1944
BOULTON, Margaret Biggs born 1899 died 1981


This announcement from El Paso Herald Post [newspaper] shows that the Ben Boulton family lived in Los Angeles prior to El Paso. Jane's name seems to be Dorothy Jane (1930 census Dorothy Jane b abt 1917):
