R C Montgomery

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Aspen Report 25 Apr 2013 12:21

I am looking for in formation for R C Montgomery's wife.
I can find the family leaving India 23/12/1928 and then again returning 03/09/1929
R C Montgomery b. 1896 Enginneer
Mrs R C Montgomery b. 1902
Miss Cynthia b. 1923
Miss Patricia b. 1926
Miss Joan b. 1928
In 1929 their address was Littlefield Sunningdale Berks
I have checked family trees and birth and marriages but cannot find any information for Mrs R C Montgomery.
I cannot find any member leaving England before 1928 to go to India or returning after 1929.
Any information would be helpful. :-D

As I could not find Patricia's birth or Joan's I was not sure if that one was the family I was looking for, but kept it in mind.
Thank you for replying so quickly.

Maybe the children were all born in India


Aspen Report 25 Apr 2013 13:04

I think they may have been born in India. I noted that R C seemed to have been born 1896, 1898 and 1899.
Robert Clayton Montgomery Marriage looks promising!
Thank you

theres no birth record for Joan born in Buckinghamshire


Aspen Report 25 Apr 2013 16:21

I had a look at Joan Y Montgomery tree but there are no other siblings there. I did note the date of birth and wondered if her birth was registered there after they came back from India. :-S
