    • According to the 1910 census, Elena is identified as a widow who was married in 1902. We know, though, that at this time her husband, William HARRIS, is living in the city with his second wife and two children. Considering the times, it may have been prudent to identify herself as a widow rather than a divorced Catholic. [5]
