The Key Person I am researching is: Mary Etta Wilbur she was Born on 31 Jan 1866. orphaned sometime before 1870, parents unknown, she was born in Lewiston Maine. She was raised by the Calvin and Georgianna Winn family of Cape Neddick, Me. She was ,married in1884 at Wells, Me. to my Gr, Great Grandfather Henry W. Donnell Sr. (1857-1886) and they had 2 children , Winnie E. (1885-1974) and Henry W, jr. (1886-1959).
Her husband Henry Sr, drowned in April 1886 at Cape Neddick, he was a lobster-man. . Mary in 1889 left her children with the Same Winn family that had raised her. She then married Joseph E. Joy in may of 1889, they lived in South Berwick. They had Three Children, Ruby (1891-1972?) a son , Ormand (1891-1892)and a second son named Ormand 1897-1914). Some time between 1900-1905, Mary and Joseph were Divorced, as Joseph states on his marriage in 1906.
I still do not when Mary Etta Wilbur died, and if she married maybe a 3rd time, and it seems she may have married a George E Stevens in 1903 in North Berwick. Her daughter Ruby married in 1916 and moved to Lowell Mass. I have much info on Ruby's line to the present, and Winnie and Henry Jr's as well, Just would like to find out what happened to Mary after 1900,If she married a 3rd time and when she died, and where buried.
