Notes for Edward E Foley:
The marriage record of Edward and Helena lists this individual as Foley even though the children all seem to have taken the name Fowler.  In the record of his son's marriage in 1877, William L Fowler lists his parents as Edward and Helena K, while in the record of the marriage of Helena Louisa, the parents are listed as William and Helena Lander.  In the marriage record of his daughter Anna, his name is given as George.

In the death record of his son William, his place of birth is unknown.

The Census for 1850 lists Edward living in Boston Ward 1 with wife Eleanor, 25 and children Catherine 5, William 4, Caroline 2, and Adelaide L, 4/12- born it appears about May 1850.

At the birth of his youngest son Morris, his address is given as 2 Garden Street (ward 6) in Boston, his occupation mariner, born in Nova Scotia.  It seems that he simply vanished after  1854.
