Hi there Kal, There is someone else that you could help me with.. John and Hannah Dalton, Foleshill. I have a lot of info on them, but conflicting birth/baptism dates for John ranging from 1780 to 1791. Maybe the census returns could help pin him down. Best regards and thanks, Kaye.

Hi Kal, So sorry to read about your mum inlaw, my thoughts are with you and your family. I had the same with my dad (a Covkid) he was only 72..one feels so helpless. I have another 2 lookups if you could be so kind..they are not urgent..especially if your flu is still yakky. Here they are.. Sussanah Wagstaff, born around 1845, Coventry. (William Taylors wife). And John and Elizabeth Taylor, in 1841 they would have been in their early 60's, I think Coventry. Hope you feel better soon, Kindest regards, Kaye.

Hi Kal, Gosh! My ancestors were like rabbits! lol. How you could find the right wagstaff family is beyond me, there are so many of them..but she's definately "my" Susannah and they lived in Little Park St well into the 1880s. The 2 Taylor families I'm not too sure..have to check 'em out. All this is going to keep me quiet for some time lol. Once again many, many thanks for all your help and hard work, I really appreciate it. Hope you are feeling better, Regards, Kaye.

Hello Kal, Wonder if you can help me with a long standing problem. Joseph Henry Birch, born, according to all the later census retuns in Foleshill in 1857, son of Thomas and Elizabeth, Thomas was a Plasterer. No sign of them in Foleshill in 1851, they turn up later in Yorkshire in 1881. I just had a hope that if Joseph Henry was born in 1857 they might still be in Foleshill or Coventry in 1861 - I know it is a long shot. Look forward to hearing from you, whatever the result! Yvonne
