Hi argyllgran

Thank you for your response, I meant to say my great grandad's wife's name.

Sorry for any confusion.

Kind regards,
Christine.

You asked about the name Jarden or Garden given in the two transcriptions of the 1911 census posted by Reggie and Patchem -
the actual census form says Jordan, but the people transcribing it haven't been able to decipher the handwriting on the form, and have thought the name looked like Jarden or Garden.

Hi, Christine -
I'm a bit confused!
In your OP you said your grandad William's wife was Martha Baggley -
so why are you asking for her name?

Or was your grandma a second wife?

And is there any mileage in the birth record I posted earlier, do you think? Is it worth pursuing that?

Hi Reggie,

Thank you for replying,

Looking through the reply that you posted regarding the Gardens I have noticed that all of the information posted relates to the names and dates of my family the Jordan's. Is it possible that the Gardens name has been inputted incorrectly? Could it mean Jordan?

I am looking my Grandad's birthplace, we think it maybe Killarney in Ireland? Also we are looking for the name of his spouse my Grandma.

Any help is appreciated.
Thanks again,
Christine.

Hi MarieCeleste,

Thank you for your time replying to me, the information that we are looking for is where in Ireland my grandad was born, we think it was Killarney?

We are also looking for the name of his spouse, which was my grandma.

We cannot find where he was buried, or his definite death date.

Thanks again,
Christine.

What are you hoping for?

You know a lot about him.....so what are you missing?

MarieCeleste

MarieCeleste Report 25 Mar 2013 23:07

Hello Chris, what do you mean by finding him? What records are you looking for when you already have his father, spouse and children? Where did he live and who were the children & when/where born?

What research have you done, and on what sites?

Just so we avoid duplicating your own research.
