What makes you think Emily's mother was once Anna Stares? The families don't appear to fit together.

When and where was Emily Maria born?

Do you know when William John married? What was his occupation?

Ann Bernette Report 28 Apr 2013 18:41

William had a daughter Emily Maria, her mother is said on the birth certificate as Anna Maria formerly moss. But I tracked anna maria in the cencus forms as Anna or Hannah Maria stares. Even though her family are still living with her father William moss in the 1881 census. A mystery .
