I am stuck and would love any suggestions on where to look for records to find out what happened to the sister of my great-grandmother who emigrated from Ireland to Sante Fe, New Mexico, around 1880.
Here is her page in my family tree: http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/36544937/person/19932557493
Name: Ida HAMILTON
DOB: December 2nd 1861 in South Africa. However, she sometimes said she was born in Ireland.
Parents were both deceased.
Last record I have for her is in the New Mexico Territorial Census of 1885 where she is living in Santa Fe with:
Arthur Boyle Head
Blanche Boyle Wife
Chas I Boyle Son
Cicily M Boyle Daughter
Robert V Boyle Son
Ida Hamilton Niece
Arthur Blackmore Nephew
In 1893 an Irish court case notes that she is residing in Sante Fe, New Mexico. and still gives her name as Ida HAMILTON so I am assuming she had not married or died by this date.
Does anyone know of other records I could use to locate her, her death or marriage?
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
