Bowie, Maryland, 1991) Repository: #R12 Page: 221-222 Data: Text: A moderate amount of information may be applied to the adult life of Ellen Maria Fowle, Henry's last daughter. She was four weeks shy of her twenty-fourth birthday the evening of October 2, 1842, when she married Joseph Richards, Boston sailmaker, in the Purchase st. (Unitarian) Church. The Rev. James I. T. Coolidge, George Ripley's successor at Purchase st., performed the ceremony. The bridegroom --- seven years or so older than his wife --- must have seemed like something of an exotic to his in-law; for his late father Peter Richards also a sailmaker, had been born and raised in St. Thomas, the West Indies. (His mother, Mary, was born, more prosaically, in Westminster, near Fitchburg.) That Joseph and Ellen's married life had its precarious moments is suggested by the fifteen different Boston addresses at which they resided between 1842 and 1870. (For the last ten of those years they were residents of South Boston --- a neighborhood where, up until then, none of Henry Fowle's people had lived.) Nevertheless the Richardses raised a family. They had four known sons: Frank A., George C., Eugene F., and Walter P. All four lived to adulthood, and Frank and Eugene are known to have married. Frank and Walter both became machinists, and in fact trained with their machinist uncle Joseph Fowle. (in the 1870 federal census, Frank described himself as a pianoforte machinist.) George was a housepainter and Eugene, variously, a carpenter and packer. CONT CONT Ellen (Fowle) Richards lived just long enough to be counted in the census of 1870. She died of breast cancer on August 17, at the age of 51. Joseph her husband survived until 1876.
