Cahill Family

Hello !
Seasoned helpers from other sites might recognise this story.
Sarah Ellen Williams b. Liverpool in 1870 marries James Thomas Cahill in 1887 also in Liverpool. In 1888 a child Ellen is born. The family does not appear in any search I have made in the 1891 census.
My particular reason for seeking them is that in approx. 1895, Sarah Ellen Cahill alledgedly sends her young daughter out to get milk. When the child comes home, Mother has disappeared, never to be seen again. Died ?? A bad marriage ??? No-one knows.
James reappears in the 1901 census in Liverpool with daughter Ellen, now known as Helen. The census says he is married but he doesn't formalise the marriage until 1902 which significantly is 7 years from the time of Sarah Ellen's disappearance.

James was a rigger of ships who may have, and probably was, born in Ireland. The family may have gone back to visit. Many people have spent many hours helping me to no avail.

Does anyone here have a new suggestion to make ? It would me most appreciated.
