I'm trying to research a Noyes family from Massachusetts that re-located to New Mexico in late 1870's-1880.
I have hit a brick wall as far as researching what happened to my two times great grandmother Nancy Richards (b. 1821 in Dover, MA) and my two times great uncle Francis S. Noyes (b. 1849 in Brockton, Plymouth, MA).
In the 1880 Census both Francis and his mother show up for the last time.They have moved from MA to Colfax NM and are living together on a ranch next door to the famous Dorsey Mansion Ranch http://www.dorseymansion.com/http://www.dorseymansion.com/,where my grandfather Edward R Noyes is employed (and lives).
Francis is listed as a stock raiser, and his mother is listed as a widow.This is the last record I have found for either of them.Can anyone help or point me in the right direction in uncovering info. about what happened to them?I would like to know if my great, great uncle Francis Noyes has descendents or what the death dates of both he and his mother is.
