Hi Prickles,

Thank you so much you have been busy while I've been out for my walk. Lots there for me to do.
Robert Saxton did die in 1851 I found his death in the 19th century newspapers, not sure now if Mary Saxton did die in 1856 that was a Mary Saxon I missed off the T when I typed it into Freebmd.

Again Thank you

Wendy

Mary does not appear on the 1861 census.......and there is not an appropriate death for her between 1851 and 1861.

I am wondering if the 1856 death is her and the "t" has been missed out.

Wendy

Wendy Report 4 Jun 2014 17:45

Hi Prickles,

Sorry been out all day. thank you for looking for her I like you think the 1856 death is her, I think the next thing to do is find their burial's and see if they are in the same grave.
