he left home in 1895 aged 21 yrs, would love to hear from anyone who has him on their tree

If you look under "search" in the top bar and then "search all trees" you can see for yourself if anyone has this person in their tree and you can then contact the tree owner direct.

Hello GJ, if you can tell us what part of the world he was from, who his family were and when he was last "seen" then perhaps we can help .....

How do you know he left home 1895, what were the circumstances?

ArgyllGran Report 14 Apr 2013 21:12

Although, if the 1901 and 1911 census reports are the right ones, he seems to have stayed in the area, so don't know how his parents couldn't find him.
Perhaps the story was embroidered over the years, perhaps he just wouldn't have anything to do with them, or perhaps it's another Edward Humphreys.

New poster - friendly message on how to return to thread sent. :-)


GJ Report 15 Apr 2013 15:07

thank you for all your replies, but argyllgran, this is another Edward, not mine. Mike, you have the right one, but I already have all the birth/family details...its just that he disappeared apparently after an argument with his parent aged 21. His parents spent the rest of their lives looking for him, and it seems like I,ll be doing the same! Seems he covered his tracks very well.


GJ Report 15 Apr 2013 15:11

I,ve also already searched the trees on here, and cant find him. Argyllgran..the previous thread link was mine from a few yrs ago. have been trying to find him for about 15 yrs..was hoping I could have found out what happened to him for my mother and her one remaining cousin, but they,ve both died now.
