Looking for information on Ann Morrison Lindsay, born January 29, 1880, to Henry L. Lindsay (b. 22 Oct 1847, d. 31 Aug 1914) and Jennie Morrison (b. 25 Dec 1850, d. 8 Oct 1926.) Ann appears to have been born in Scotland from the information on the 1905 Rhode Island State Census for Westerly.

Ann Lindsay married Joseph Edwin Champlin (b. 29 Jul 1871, d. 26 Dec 1935) on 15 Sep 1897 in Rhode Island. They resided in Westerly and had two children: Clara (b. 9 Oct 1900, d. 28 Oct 1995) and Margaret Champlin (b. 6 Jan 1905, d. 3 Dec 1989.) Both children were born in Rhode Island.

Margaret is adopted by Charles & Lena Orn of Montville, CT, sometime between 1910 and 1920 and is listed in the 1920 census of Montville as Inez M. Orn. She later married James L. Dygert Sr.

In 1908, Joseph Edwin Champlin marries Ida Francis Lapham (b. 24 Aug 1881) on 19 Feb 1908 in Westerly, Rhode Island. From what I can tell they have no children together.

I cannot seem to locate either divorce or death records for Ann Morrison (Lindsay) Champlin in Rhode Island. I would appreciate any information on her, especially date of death and burial location if available.
