Edward Report 22 Jul 2013 19:55

Help i am looking for a wedding of a Male Madge to a Female Hunter about 1890 to 1914 they had a daughter Eva R Madge in 1914 I have looked in what i think every where but with no luck the wedding may have been in Devon
Thanking You

It is possible that Eva's mother had been married before and so the marriage to Male Madge wouldn't be to Hunter.

If it was my family I'd bite the bullet and order the birth certificate.
