I am trying to trace Ann after her 2nd marriage to a Samuel Meadows, my last find on her is the 1881 census. I can't seem to trace her after this year. Has anyone any information on her where and when she died? She was my 2 x Gt Grandmother.

regards BBK

Hi Reggie, I have tried to find a death, my only lead was a death in Peterborough, was hoping someone may have her in their tree with some info. The BMD seems to show a Silas Meadows no Samuel. I have not found Samuel after 1881.

Ancestry trees are notoriously unreliable...................

Ann's name didn't become Meadows until 1881,

Her children were named per 1881 census

the family posted by safc are in Nottingham in 1881
