The question then becomes, which Elizabeth Roy is she? The name Elizabeth appears as the wife of George Englehart in the 1891 Census of Canada. It also gives her age and that she was Roman Catholic, born in Quebec Province. From this, we can estimate her birth year to around 1863. A search of the Quebec Catholic Parish Records narrowed the search to a single record - the birth record for Marie Elisabeth Roy, born 25 Nov 1863 in Bonaventure, Quebec. This is the same area that George Englehardt also came from.

The evidence that this particular Elizabeth Roy is the first wife of George is thus circumstantial. I have not found a marriage record that includes George and Elizabeth, and their parents, which would confirm the connection.
