Wayne,

So when I found a death for Florence with a dob 1908 did you say her dad would have been 12?

Hannah Report 30 Aug 2007 13:54

I was born in 1986 and i think florence died before i was even born or maybe when i was a baby. I wouldnt have been very old though.

I think he must have mis-read what you put steph.

Steph

Steph Report 30 Aug 2007 13:55

Just for reference I think this must be Florence second husband death.

Albert George Leese dob 9/06/01
died in Wrekin in Mar qtr 1979

Therefore the earlier death I found for Florence was incorrect.

Hannah

Hannah Report 30 Aug 2007 13:55

But i dont think she would have died in stoke on trent

All this confusion is good for the brain....lol

Well we have my grandma hilda b.1930 blackburn

2 years before, 1928 her sister Betty was born wellington.

There are the other children joe, derek, peter, edna, susan and june.

June was the last to be born 1943.

Their mother was florence ball (think her middle name was may) and she was from shropshire but we dont have a birth for her yet.

Their father was joseph bradshaw from blackburn. we have his death 1948 (when my nana was 18) age 52 wellington. we dont have his birth yet. but he must have been born about 1896.

And we dont have their marriage yet.

does that clear it up a bit?

Steph

Steph Report 30 Aug 2007 14:09

hannah, you said florence was in her 50's when she married her next hubby surname leese...

so being born in 1904 she couldn;t have been married before 1954? when she turned 50?

Hannah

Hannah Report 30 Aug 2007 14:10

Oh well done steph!

That sounds right.

Hannah

Hannah Report 30 Aug 2007 14:11

I dont know for certain Wayne, but my nana said to me well they never had any more children because her mother was into her 50's when she married her second husband.

Dear me, im stupid asking for help when i know so little....sorry guys.

Steph Report 30 Aug 2007 14:15

Florence remarried in 1955 to Albert George Leese.
