Trying to find Ross

I am trying to find out about my grandmother, ELIZABETH BETSY ROSS, born 1891. My father knew very little about his mother as he was only 8/9yrs old when she died in 1929 aged just 38yrs. All we do know about her is that she was one of 3 sisters who all died in their late 30s or early 40s and all within a few years of each other. Their parents names were Caroline & John Ross. We know she was of Irish descent and was related to the DUFFY & DALY families who we know lived in Avenell Rd & Chatterton Rd, London N4. All 3 sisters had separate flower stalls in and around the Finsbury Park Station area. Elizabeth married my grandfather GEORGE WALTER EUESDEN in about 1911, he was a professional boxer who boxed under the name 'Georgie Hughes.' I am desperate to find out any info about her and the Ross family, I haven't ever even seen a photo of her. Many thanks.
