Trying to find Straughan

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Keith Report 4 Jul 2004 00:26

Looking for info or contact relatives of Emma Straughan. I think Emma was born around 1878 in South London. She married Henry (possibly Harry) Bedson, also from Lambeth/Southwark area. They had 7 children: Harry, Albert, Lionel, Norman, Vera, Alma, & Maud. Their children were born between 1896 & about 1910. I think her mother's name was Emma too, & she was a midwife. That's all my mother can remember!
