Welcome to the boards Caroline.

When and where were those people born?

Can you confirm the surname as Bucks? There were only 35 Bucks births registered in England and Wales between 1916 and 2005. There was no Henry J or Elizabeth F amongst them but there was a Florence E Bucks birth registered in Hampshire in 1916:

Name: Florence E Bucks
Mother's Maiden Surname: Quail
Date of Registration: Apr-May-Jun 1916
Registration district: Portsmouth
Inferred County: Hampshire
Volume Number: 2b
Page Number: 693

Have you used freebmd to determine whether they had children?

What was the woman's maiden name?

A little more info is needed if we are to help you...........

Have you done any research yourself?
