Thank you for all those that helped me look for Ellen Greengrass through the
census'.

I am now looking for info on her sister EMILY GREENGRASS B abt 1872

She married a ARTHUR ALBERT BUXTON in June 1898 but he died in
1899 and she is on the 1901 as a widow working as a shirt machinist.

Would someone be able to find her on the 1911 Census please.

Would like to know if she remarried or not.

Many thanks Sandra

Have you looked for possible marriages for her so that we can see if a new surname works for her?
Thanks

No, I haven't looked for additional marriages to be honest.

She was living in Walthamstow in 1901

Emily was born Feltham Middlesex

Do you think this could be a possible marriage for her?
Marriages Dec 1903
Buxton Emily W. Ham 4a 399
Cameron Mary Nicolson W. Ham 4a 399
Edwards Henry Edward W. Ham 4a 399
Smart Edmund James W. Ham 4a 399

It seems an obvious place to start, similarly have you looked for deaths?

That looks like a possible marriage in 1903 in West Ham, she married
previously to Arthur in West Ham.

Thank you Patchem

Thank you Patchem - has taken me a few minutes to work out but
looks as though Celia was Henry's first wife.

Can't fit the Farrell 77 mother in law? widowed though.

Patchem

I see, it's just that Emily's sister Ellen Greengrass (my previous thread ) married a man with the surname of Farrell......how strange !!

Maybe there was a family connection somewhere.....need to try and get my
head around it.

Thanks ever so much for your help and time, you've been brilliant giving me all this information.
