Some dates and the name of his wife and any children would help, Deborah.

Always useful to post some more info when asking for help such as the 1861 census or if you have a marriage cert etc

This saves the members having to ask questions and post a lot of info that you already have

You are not new to posting requests for help, so you should realise by now what is required of you.

And one post per topic is still the 'rule'
