Does anyone have information on Michael as I can't trace him after the 1871c. I do know that in 1871 he was a engineer at the Pickle yard. His wife Helen Amelia possibly died in July 1871. But what happened to Michael?

Have you found any of the children after 1871 ?

Did they marry and was Michael a witness or shown as deceased ?

I'm not having any luck so far.

I can't find the youngest daughter Edith after 1871 either.

Nor me.

I wonder if he left the country being an engineer but i think would be too early for passenger lists

Abode was what looks like Oreston - same as on Edith's.

Dear all,
Thanks but I do have all of this information, plus Ellen and Edith's deaths. I believe that daughter 'Gabriel' was registered as Mary Ann Carter' Beer 26 Sep 1861 Plymouth. It's just Michael the Father that I cannot trace after the 1871census? Perhaps for some reason he changed his name??

As Barbara is a fairly new poster, I'll send a friendly message on how to return to this thread. :-)

Glitterbaby.

That I haven't tried, one of the children's marriages after 1871. I haven't been on this tree for a while so that is where I will start now. Good thinking, thank you.
