WDYTYALive Advisor Report 24 Feb 2012 12:39

I am looking for trace of (Arthur) Vincent Dunk b5 Jan 1840, and d 16 Apr 1876. Have him in 1841 and 1851 census records, but none after that. Am trying to trace him in later census and more importantly death information.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
