Hi I am trying to find the birth record of Alice Mary Rodgers. I think her parents were Thomas Winter Rodgers and Edith Keep who lived in Uffculme, but I could be wrong!!
She married Charles H W Graves then Edward Sprague

Thanks

Wendy

What made you think that her parents were Thomas and Edith?

patchem

patchem Report 10 Nov 2012 10:07

You need to get one of her marriage certificates for the name of her Father.

I am just wondering if Wendy is assuming that Alice was born in Devon because that is where she married??

patchem

patchem Report 10 Nov 2012 10:37

Possibly so, but no suitable Alice Mary elsewhere either.

Think I was barking up the wrong tree with Thomas Winter and Edith Keep!!

Alice Mary def married Charles H W Graves in 1936 and Edward Sprague (My Grandad)in 1961
Her date of birth was 04.03.1907
She lived in Uffculme in the 50's
Hadn't thought that the surname may not have a 'D'

Hi Wendy

Good to see you found your way back to your thread.

I think the marriage cert is the best way to go......so that you can find out who her Father was.
