Elsie Maud Burge/Nickerson/Dougherty

Surnames: Burge, Nickerson, Dougherty
Hi all,
I'm hoping that someone may have come across my Great Aunt Elsie Maud Burge b.1889 Portsmouth, Hampshire, England or some of her relations.
She crossed into the US at Port of Winnipeg in 1914 with her destination stated as Fort Fairfield, Maine.
I have found her marriage to William H Nickerson in Fort Fairchild, 1915 and she appeared in the 1920 US census as divorced. In 1921 she married John R Dougherty in Fort Fairchild and died in 1961. She apparently had children as I have some photos of her and her grandsons Edwin and Charles.
Any guidance would be appreciated.
Many thanks
Andy

To Andrew (Andy)Burge: Concerning Elsie......she was my paternal grandmother. Ralph Nickerson was my father. I had two brothers....Edwin (deceased) was a physical clone of Ralph. Ralph was a physical clone of Elsie. We have pictures of Elsie and Ralph. Elsie had a brother named Charlie. I am his namesake.
