Have you got access to Ancestry for this database

UK, Railway Employment Records, 1833-1963

Have you got John Morrow on any census ?

When and where do you think the Stephensons brother were born ?


Vicci Report 28 Mar 2013 20:39

if you google John Stephenson Railway an extract from a book comes up "A History of Railway Locomotives Down to the End of the Year 1831"

there is a reference to "John Stephenson 1794-1848 railway contractor, no relation to George Stepehnson"
John Stephenson married a Dodds

note: John Morrow married and died in Nova Scotia (according to a tree on ancestry)
