Dr. Edward Ames, New Orleans, LA 1800's

Seeking more info on Dr. Edward Ames (not to be confused with Dr. Edward York Ames) who married Jane Ann. Jane Ann died in 1858. Do not kow the death date of Dr. Edward Ames. They had at least one child, Jennie Ann Ames born 1848. It is believed Jennie Ann married Dr. Charles Peter Ames in 1868. Dr. Charles Peter Ames died in NOLA in 1875.

Dr. Edward Ames was a physician living in New Orleans as late as the early 1870's. He may have died in 1874. His medical office from the 1850s - 1870s was located at number 95 Exchange Place (or Exchange Alley). He was a prominent individual. Thomas K. Wharton mentions him in his journal on 30 June 1861. Wharton writes "after dinner visited Dr. Ames and examined his house now in erection". In 1861 Ames lived at 362 Camp. He moved in 1866 to 350 Camp between Erato and Thalia. By 1873 he was living at 384 St. Charles Ave. In 1866 he served as chairman of streets and landings (he was appointed to the board in 1862) and during the Civil War he was one of four other well known citizens appointed to the Board of Almoners to distribute monies collected for charity.

Any help would be appreciated.
