Emma Robson

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Unknown Report 1 Feb 2013 07:16

Looking for descendants of Emma, born to William Robson and Isabella Patterson abt 1886 in County Durham. I have her on census records up to and incl.1911 and have recently found information on her sister Mary and half brother John Alfred Mason. My grandfather Charles Mason is also her half brother. Hoping someone out there knows of Emma past 1911 incl marriage/descendants if any. Thanks.

Yes it is, I have the previous ones as well, but can get no further with her.

Do you have the deaths for her mother and stepfather, wondered if she registered either? There's too many Emma Robson's around to be sure of a marriage, without getting certificates - any chance she went to Australia with Charles & family?

She definitely didnt come to Australia. I have a death for her father (Robson) and stepfather (Mason) and the remarriage of her mother to Gallon. Have no death for her mother, and wondered if she had indeed married again. Already had three marriages! Only in the last week had contact with someone researching Mary Robson, Emma's sister, but she is Mary great-granddaughter and has no info on Emma either. Very frustrating.
