Elizabeth Report 14 May 2013 14:52

Am trying to track down Robert who was born in Suffolk. Village of Coddenham, Earl Stonham or possibly Stowupland in October1829.
He came from a large farming family.

He seems to have vanished from everywhere a few years after he was born. It is possible he could have moved to America.
Has anybody come across Robert in their research??
