Hi, I'm trying to find the father of George Wilcock b1876 in Barnsley, Yorkshire. Georges father is also named George Wilcock. All I have managed to find is that he married Mary (maiden name Buck) in 1865 and had 5 children in total. Henry b1866, Walter b1869, Ann b1871, Thomas b1874 and George b 1876.(all Wilcock) after the 1881 census Mary is listed as widowed. I am unable to find a birth or death date for George. Can anyone help because i'm at a complete loss

I had come to the conclusion that George's father was called joseph but I was unsure and doubted myself, but after reading all this im positive of it. and to know his occupation is brilliant.
