Posting the names etc of her children is unnecessary..........and an invasion of their privacy, particularly in view of the circumstances

Nadine

Nadine Report 22 Nov 2012 18:07

Children removed.

Nadine Report 22 Nov 2012 18:26

Does anyone know how i could confirm the correct marriage of Betsy's parents from the 2 listed above other than purchase the records?
I've searched Ancestry for a baptism certificate but no luck..

Reggie

Reggie Report 22 Nov 2012 22:33

Thank you, Nadine, for removing the details

You could check freebmd for Colclough/Webb births.

See which locations they are in and do some cross-referencing.............and eliminating.

EDIT

I've looked..........

There is one in Stoke in the same qtr as one in Watford, so that's a start

BUT......as always, her birth cert is the way to be really sure

Many thanks x

Kay???? Report 9 Jan 2013 16:43


check Roberts death in 1986 it will state his age,,,,,,,Betsey Lousia died in 1995 both in Watford...

From Roberts age at death its possible then to work out a birth area from a search list.

You really should invest in the marriage cert.

That will give you factual info........speculation is unwise, to say the least
