If the censuses that I posted are correct then the deaths that I posted would be strong contenders for the deaths of Alfred and Susan(ne).

Thanks and thanks, sorry for not replying sooner, we are 8 hours behind you and have spent today going for a treatment and visiting my husband in a nursing facility for Alzheimers, forgive me I am so appreciative of this findings didn't expect so much feedback at all so I am shocked. Judith

I may have to go through my research papers, but it sounds like we are on the right road, It is looking more like Frank my grandfather was given to be raised by his mothers sister. Too many other siblings. Looks like you have found some maybe. I think I know now why my grandparents only had two children, not to put them in the same predicament, very small houses in those days. I remember it well. thanks so far for this. Now need to find out deaths which is very hard to find without dates.
thank you this is certainly a help now I know. Very secretive of the siblings and heritage in those days. Frank died when I was a little girl so I never new much about him. Judith <3

Could you tell us if you know anything about why Penny's post was been requested for review, as I cannot recollect that it had anything in it that would justify that happening?
Thank-you


There is not necessarily a change of name, just the way it was written and pronounced by different people.

Have I found the correct people in the censuses that I posted, as they do not fit with the Alfred Jinks, 1860, in your tree?
Thanks

Seems there was a change of name from Jinks to Jenks or vice versa. Frank Jinks may have been given to Eliza Seager to raise. Maybe too many children. Eliza went to live with Frank and Annie Jinks when they married.
I have been trying to find out why he was adopted and then went to live as an orphan . I have my grandfathers bible inscripted from Aunt Elliza upon his entrance to the orphanage. dated 1891. She states she adopted him at the age of 13months to the age of 9. They tell this happened alot at those times when they couldn't care for more children. Judith :-) :-(
