Not without some idea when he would have been born

I take it his name was James and not Jimmy?

We need much more information if we are to help you!

A good idea of when he might have been born, roughly when he was married married, when he was living in Folkestone

Name of his wife

Was he born in Folkestone, in Kent, or elsewhere.

and anything else that you know!

otherwise, it is rather like looking for a black cat in a coal cellar :-D

Read your post as though you were one of us......and see whether you think anyone else reading it would have the slightest idea of who you are looking for

Many Thanks

You still have NOT given us any more personal information about him, that would let us find him

All we can do with the information provided is to use google ..........

which you can do yourself just as well as we can!

what is your relationship to him?


Reggie Report 5 Oct 2012 22:39

When you find out when and where he was born.........come back with the his actual given name

You say he is 'somewhere' in your family tree.............what is the source of that rather vague info?
