     Flora D. Evans was born in 1848.1 She was the daughter of Israel Evans and Minerva Jane Moe.1 She married Edward James Roche on 3 September 1867 at Chatham, Kent County, Ontario.1 She married Archibald McNaughton on 5 December 1890 at Hamilton, Ontario. (notes: 013203-90 Hamilton, Wentworth Co. 5 December 1890. Arch'd. McNaughton, 37, born Canada residing Chatham. Bachelor, Agent. Parents William and Isabella. Flora D. Roche, 39 (this may be a little light), born Canada, residing Chatham, widow. Parents Israel and Jane. Witnesses: Mrs. May Bell and Mrs. Arletta D. Ross, both of Hamilton. The groom was Presbyterian and the bride Methodist. The clergyman was James S. Ross.).1 She died on 18 February 1906.1 She was buried at Maple Leaf Cemetery, Chatham, Kent County, Ontario.1 There is an index for the marriage of Flora and Edward:
Evans, Flora 19 ' ' m. Roche, Edw. James 24, s/o Wm., 1867
The names for their children are from the 1881 Canadian census which was taken at Chatham, Kent Co., Ontario, as well as an extraction for the years of their births. To date, I have not found them in the 1901 census.

The following is the marriage record itself from microfilm MS248, reel 8, vol 23, Kent Co marriages 1858 - 1869, sheet 82, #243:

Edward James ROCHE, 24, Chatham, U. States, s/o Wm. & Mary Ann ROCHE,married Flora D. EVANS, 18 (19?), Chatham, Canada, d/o Israel & Minerva Jane EVANS, witn: Starr McCREA, Clara EVANS, both of Chatham, 3 September 1867

By way of interest, here is a marriage record noted some months priorto the above marriage where Edward and Flora are witnesses:

Edwin MARSON, 22, Windsor, England, s/o Sam?l & Mary MARSON, married Nettie BLACKBURN, 17, Chatham, Canada, d/o James & Salina BLACKBURN, witn: Edw?d ROCHE, Flora EVANS, both of Chatham, 1 January 1867

Nettie Blackburn was a first cousin of Flora's. Nettie's mother, Sabrina Moe Blackburn, was sister of Minerva Jane Moe Evans.

At the time of the 1900 U.S. census in Manhattan, New York, Flora is with her second husband Archibald McNaughton in New York. With them are Maud Evans, Flora's sister, and Albert Roche, Flora's son by her first marriage.1
