hi all, looking for children of PERCY MATTHEWS and OCTAVIA ADA, nee HEWITT. They were married in BLACKPOOL JULY 1909. She was a school teacher and he was a commercial clerk. his dad WILLIAM GALLOWAY MATTHEWS came from PLYMOUTH but all his family came from CLAPHAM in LONDON. OCTAVIA ADAs dad was JOSHUA HEWITT from WEST DERBY LIVERPOOL.. OCTAVIA was my g/aunt, youngest sister of my grandma and I would love to hear from anybody connected to them both. Thanks. TED.
