I am looking for an ALICE GREENGRASS born in India abt 1864.
She had an illigitamate son in 1880 but then went on to marry a
Charles D McDonald in 1884 in Hackney (I have marriage cert)
Charles lived next door to her.

I would like to find her on the 1891, 1901 and 1911 census if that
is possible.

Thanks for any help
