1911 dad david married 30 years a widow 5 children 3 died.

Sarah 1872 married George Ernest Wood in 1891
she died 1898
John C 1881 died 1910
Mary Ann died 1956
Catherine/Kitty 1878 married Harry Moon she is on 1911 census in Sculcoate Yorkshire.

So that leaves one death missing which looks like David 1876-1906!

Hi Eileen, thank you for your look ups on David Weatherhead.

Yes it does seem that he never married, and he did live in South Shields,so it could well be his death you have found.


Thanks again

Hello Eileen...my David's parents were David Weatherhead and Ann Corson.
I do have a lot of information about this family....but it puzzled me as to why I couldn't find David junior's marriage.
I would like to have seen if there were any children to him and his wife....I haven't had any luck. maybe there were none to be found.

Thank you for asking.
