I thought i had found all my Matildas children from her 1st Marriage years ago....how wrong I was!
Abel Horton b14/04/1856
Charles Horton b 3/3/1859
Ann Maria Horton b13/1/1861- d 30/5/1864.

Now i have found this new birth of a Mary Matilda Horton b 25/10/1862.
Cert arrived today. Same parents and Maiden name.
Father George Horton b1836-1863.
All 4 born in Newinvention Willenhall Staffs. (Walsall ish)

Now the puzzel begins....
Where did she go???
I cant find a death a Marriage nothing!

All of Matildas children and marriages/deaths were reg at Wolverhampton.

Matilda had a hard time in the 60s as her Husband died in 1863 then her Daughter died the following year aged just 3.
cause of death..
Injuries caused by a quantity of oil of vitriol being thrown over her. she died 3 days later.

Did Matilda have her Children taken away from her?
In 1861 census her eldest son Abel was staying with his great Uncle Abel Fletcher.

Any ideas?

Oh Chris you little star you! Thankyou.

I should have known that as they called little ann Maria Annie.

I did have all those others and have visited that grave yard but the church lost the plans years ago and i couldnt find any headstones..

Thankyou again :-)

Off to buy the cert and cry again.
