Pleasure to help you Amanda. It's great for us helpers when the poster stays around to find out what has been found and responds quickly as you have done.

When you get the certificates, if you require any more help on this family remember to add it to this thread to keep all the information together.

Good luck with your research.

Mrs. Rootie

They all seem to tie in with dates and so on, Oh my Ruth was widowed quite young and with all those children to care for life must of been chaotic, however would she have managed and what income would they have had. So many questions left unanswerd.
Thank you Rootgatherer

To find out the cause of death you would need to purchase the death certificate from GRO.

Potty Report 13 Jan 2013 10:42

There are possible births for Ruth Long on freebmd but you would be better buying the marriage cert to find out her father's name and then trying to find her on the census. There is more than one of the same name born about the same time in the right area.
