Maddie Report 31 Jan 2013 16:12

can't see a marraige with peter becht, mind you the 1871 image is impossible to read so may not be becht



Astra Report 31 Jan 2013 16:14

It is the wrong family in the 1871 i posted. Their name is Wright and mother is Catherine but they appear as Wright in 1881.
The original image on the 1871 is very faded and i don't think, with the best will in the world that you could make it out to be Wright!
