I am seeking information regarding Mary America Billings, born 1849, New York. By age 11 she was living in a hostel of some sort. Between 1870 and 1880 she married Thomas Charles Edward Ecclesine, possibly around 1871 when she applied for a passport. She appears in the 1880 census with her husband and three sons - Thomas (1876), Joseph (1878) and Edward (1879). She was unfortunately deceased by 1887 when her husband remarried to Piedad Garcia de Tejada.
Any information regarding parents, family etc would be greatly appreciated.
