Hi Christine

What else do you know about her.

Did she marry and have children?

Christine

Christine Report 8 Jul 2013 15:40

Hi, ...all other census show her as Leary...so I guess her mother may have remarried to a Leary...and Eliza appears to have married what appears to be a step brother....but on her marraige she states her fathers name as Higgs ( looks like Edward /Edmund)...thank you Astra :-D

The marriage of Eliza Humm to William Charles Leary was on 19 July 1910 and she gave her age as 39.....I suppose she could have told a porky because her husband was 30!
