Trying to find Osborne

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Unknown Report 2 Dec 2005 19:50

Searching for any information on FREDERICK GEORGE OSBORNE who we think was born around 1887. He is said to have married ADA EARLY but I have found no record of this yet. He apparently died around 1909/10 by drowning. Ada emigrated to Canada aged 30 after his death where she was known as Mrs Fred Osborne (widow).They had a daughter ETHEL MARY OSBORNE (MOLLY) born in 1909 in Hull who was left behind in England to be brought up by a friend. She lived in Yorkshire until her death in 2000. I have her birth certificate but any knowledge of her childhood and later life would be welcomed.
