trying to find any relatives of Eric Watson Dearn lived in kent (originally from Sheffield)


patchem Report 4 Apr 2011 17:41

As he was born in 1927 he could still be alive.

OK, died.

Obtain the death certificate for name of informant?


jax Report 5 Apr 2011 12:59

Eric had a brother born 1931 do you know about him? who married in 1954
Not seeing a marriage for Eric



Susan Report 5 Apr 2011 13:57

Yes I know about his brother but do not know who he married or where


jax Report 5 Apr 2011 14:25

Will pm it as I cannot see a death



jax Report 5 Apr 2011 15:23

So it looks to me Eric died without marrying and the other brother married but did'nt have children...unless his wife had been married before in which case that would not be her maiden name



Susan Report 5 Apr 2011 16:18

Eric Watson Dearn - married someone called Joan Olive? unsure where they got married or when


patchem Report 5 Apr 2011 17:56

There is a Joan O Dearn on the electoral register for Whitstable.
So we are possibly investigating living people. What is your connection?


Susan Report 6 Apr 2011 14:09

Eric Watson Dearn (deceased) is my fathers son by his first wife Evelyn Maud Crofts which makes me his sister and Joan Olive is his wife



patchem Report 6 Apr 2011 17:31

Sorry, cannot see a wedding.


Susan Report 7 Apr 2011 13:46
