Hello, could someone look at the above census and the following two census for the above. She was born Coundon Co Durham 1863 parents Robert and Ann. She married John Johnson (born 1860 also at Coundon) at St Annes, Auckland on 26 November 1882 (parents William and Isabel).

Yes Marie, this will be her, I know it says Annie but she was born Ann.

He is a farm labourer in 1881

Could I have a look up for the Isabel the daughter of the above on the 1911 census. She is now called Pritchard, married to George Frederick (born 1883) in 1909. At least I hope this is Isabel. They may be at Coundon, Bishop Auckland, Co Durham. Thank you. This is marked as answered and I don't know how to get it off. Thanks.

The "Marked as answered" tick is broken. Once on, you can't remove it. Has been reported to Genes many times but nowt happens.

Best to avoid it altogether - you never know when you might want to come back to a thread.

(Nice cat picture)

Thank you Marie. The picture is one of my cats, Tinker, who is rather plump but doesn't appreciate being put on a diet. LOL
