hi ian.

just had a double check at the information i have,
I got john wood found him in the census of 1901.
living with his son Abraham and his family.

in the area of Pendleton
111 station road.

can't trace john and his family on 1871 .
I think the census of 1901 the sons have family too.

Hi ceri,

By the looks of it both could well be possible as he ended up marrying in Shoreditch and also moving about in all the census I have after he married. I will take both down and keep them just incase I get anymore information and it fits in with what you've given me.

Thankyou for looking for me and giving me both options, it's very much appreciated.

Do you know when the children were born and/or where they were born?
Do you know where Ellen died? I have looked for Ellen Wood deaths between 1861 and 1871 and there are many results!
Do you have them on the 1861 census at all?
If so, where were they living then?

Sorry, its just there are too many results for this name, Wood is a very common name.

Hi Ceri,

was wondering if you could help me with another lookup. I'm looking for a Charles Banks born 1833 in Tottenham, Middlesex in the 1841 and 1851 census if possible. I don't have anymore information than that except that he got married in 1853. Could be a longshot as it is a common surname.

Many thanks, Emma

Hi Ceri,
Many thanks.. that ties up nicely with the info I got from the Mormon Website
they have an Elsie Kedwards witha birth date of 31st March 1885 and she died nov 1969 in California.
Out of interest do you know if we can get hold of social security details as the site does list a social security number..

The following appears to be the only Mary Gallagher travelling with a husband named James Gallagher, i have looked at the actual transcription and they also have two children with them.
There are so many Mary Gallagher's and James Gallagher's travelling but not necessarily as companions etc (ie they are on same ship but just not down as companions)

GALLAGHER Mary Adult F 1911 Queenstown USA New York
