Are you certain of your dates ?

Sarah to 1847 but a daughter born 1849

Or do you think he married again

Eve

Eve Report 17 Feb 2013 22:15

Eve Report 17 Feb 2013 22:29

hi he married sarah in 10 aug 1847 so elizabeth born 1849 would be a good guide i think / he retired from the madras army in 1836 -- which would make him about 37 years old ? . he is in the ianian office records so i think he may have stayed out there for a while, maybe? . kind regards eve
