Given that James was probably born before his parents marriage, then I would go for this as his death. Several James Brown's born Gateshead RD 1872/3, but no James Caldwell

I did wonder about this one, having looked for a marriage for Isabella in the event George had died, but seems a bit unlikely in that there is no sign of James or Eliza:

Kim, have you looked for a death for George (I assume it is George not Jacob?).


lostmeboardname Report 19 Jan 2013 17:53

was just going to say, there is a Jacob Caldwell death Gateshead in 1878.
wondered if the second child was the daughter of George and not Jacob, but that marriage puts that right out the window lol

there is a Isabella Caldwell with children James and Eliza Ann in Gateshead 1881 but the head of the house is George Caldwell.
the children have the right birth years, so does Isabella !.
