Boulter, Sylvia Pearl

Birth Name Boulter, Sylvia Pearl
Gender female
Age at Death 80 years, 9 months


Sylvia Pearl Boulter was born on 28 September 1895 and baptized in 1900, the adopted daughter of Nathanial and Elizabeth Boulter. Sylvia P., age 5, was living with Nathaniel and Elizabeth in 1901.

She wasn't living with the widowed Elizabeth in 1911. When she went to the States in 1912, at age 16, her contact was her father Amos.

Although her marriage record said she was Pearl Boulter Mahoney, a widow, no earlier marriage was found for Pearl on the Island or in the New England States - perhaps a mistake.
