DENTON, John Brother Single M 49 1862 Miner Hewer Mortomley of Ecclesfield VIEW
DENTON, Joseph Brother Married M 41 1870 Miner Hewer Mortomley of Ecclesfield VIEW

There really is no need to 'think'.

Do the research.........use freebmd!


Reggie Report 18 Feb 2013 16:57

Either of these births would fit the 29-year-old's death

Births Sep 1896 (>99%)
Denton John Henry Leeds 9b 543

Births Mar 1897 (>99%)
Denton John Henry Sheffield 9c 670

So, if your 'friend' wants accurate info, she'll need a cert


Moira Report 18 Feb 2013 16:56

we think about 30 years old when he died


Reggie Report 18 Feb 2013 16:55

The father's name will be on either of the woman's marriage certs...........

It would be unwise to guess............


Reggie Report 18 Feb 2013 16:53

Which one?

Deaths Mar 1926 (>99%)
Denton John H 29 Sheffield 9c 619

Deaths Sep 1926 (>99%)
Denton John H 41 Hunslet 9b 469


Reggie Report 18 Feb 2013 16:52
