Trying to find Gordon

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Victoria Report 30 Jan 2003 18:37

I am trying to find out about my grandfathers relations. His name was William George Gordon and I think he was born in Swansea in 1909.He was a warrant officer in the Welsh Regiment of the RAF. He married my grandmother Eva Rhodes (Barker or Cooke) in Sheffield around 1948. He was married in Swansea before this to a woman called Violet Eileen Smith any help??? Also he had a sister called Evelyn she married a man called Mel Williams in Swansea and had a daughter called Susan born before 1946 who then married and had twins who are probably between 25 and 40 now ! There was also my grandfathers brother who was called Clifford Gordon we think he was married with children and once lived in Australia and then remarried at some point to a Jamaican woman. any help would be greatly appreciated I have since found out that his father was also called William George Gordon and was also in the Welsh Regiment he was probably born around 1880.
