- Information from Raymond W. Ryan, Jr. dated 31 Mar 2019:
Upon the death of her husband, Elvira Boley Edwards moved into the household of Patrick Ryan, husband of her daughter, Minerva Anne Edwards Ryan. She is later shown living in the household of "Paterick Ryan", she a widow age 69, on the 1870 Census of Cecil Co., Md. The Patrick P. Ryan family is next shown on the 1880 Census of Richmond, Va. but Elvira Boley Edwards is not living in the household.Further research of cemeteries has been conducted in both Cecil Co., Md. and Richmond, Va. for her but, thus far, I have been unable to find any further trace of her.
