Well, you seem to have it all sorted then Ginns - I am sure that George will be pleased when he checks back in.

That tree on Ancestry has quite a lot of useful info on it! - all needs checking though, as you say, but I think that the marriage you have found at least proves that we are now following the correct family.

Well done,

Dea Xxx
