From “Coroner’s Inquest”
Robert James, a man of color, deposed that he kept a board and lodging house in Cross- street; he identified the body as that of Margaret Roberts wife of Jesse Roberts, second mate of the Runnymede, whaler, and proved that he was present at the marriage: but they had lived apart between five and six years, owing to deceased’s inclination for evil courses. She was witness’s wife’s sister, and was 23 years of age.
