I don’t think she was married previously.

Their ages are Andrew 35 and Helen 39. Ages first married 29 and 33. So, both married first time 6 years previous to the 1930 census, 1924. Daughter born in 1927. https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33S7-9RH4-STW?cc=1810731

The person you seek is possibly still alive, as would be her children, so can’t be discussed on Rootschat.

You’ll need to remove her name from the title and your first post.

"Destination  Roxburg Mass"
That would be Roxbury.

"Jam?? Plain"
And this would be Jamaica Plain.

Both Roxbury and Jamaica Plain are sections or neighborhoods of Boston.  They are both on the south side of Boston and were formerly independent suburbs that were amalgamated with the city.

For future reference, please don't post about people born in the last 100 years unless you know they are deceased. 

The Massachusetts death index has a Frances Beattie who died 1957 in Boston.  No maiden name was given, so that indicates she was likely unmarried.

I found an obituary in the Boston Globe from August 30 and 31 in 1957 for Frances Beattie, daughter of Andrew and the late Helen (Cook) Beattie.  Her residence was 142 Davis Ave.  Funeral held in the First Presbyterian Church.
