Hi All

I hope someone can help me. I'm looking for Albert Wright 1874 I think he was born in Cheshire, he lived in Cheshire. He married Mary Ellen Ellwood born 1893 in Cheshire. The had a daughter Florence born 1920. He died and Mary Ellen married again. I think his father was Thomas Wright I have been unable to find him on any census.
Thank you

regards

Are you sure that you have the correct birth date for him>

Is this his death and his widows re-marriage?

Hi Jonesey

I'm not 100% sure of his birth date, but I think this looks like his death as they lived in the Northwich area.

Thank you

Hi Jonesey

Thank you so much. It's amazing what another pair of eyes can do. Now I need to find out if his mother was Jane or Sarah.

I can't thank you enough for you help. Have a good day.
