Hi Karen,
She died before 1910 I'm pretty sure. What I do know is that she's buried in Holy Sepulchre Cemetery in Newark, NJ. The manager of the cemetery at the time was a drunk and my great grandfather never knew where they buried her. This happened to quite a few people that passed during that time. She was buried in a different cemetery because she was Catholic. In those days, they did things that way.
They definitely did not get a divorce. When William remarried, he had 2 children with Florence. Their names were Florence and Harry.
Might try to contact that cemetery, but I still am pretty sure they don't have a record of her there. I'm very sad about that because I always pass by there on my way to my mom's, granparents and great grandfather's graves.
