Unknown Report 3 Apr 2005 20:26

Hi Jess, been asking questions of the rellies about Mary Hannah Allen, Travis Greenwood and Samuel Needham. Mary Hannah Allen married Travis Greenwood Sept quarter 1908 Oldham, they had twin sons in 1916, possibly two more children before that. The twins were born 82 Chelmsford St Oldham. She had Arnold Greenwood by Samuel Needham 1921. On twins birth certificates Travis Greenwood is a private 23rd Britallion Manchester Regiment reg no 25658. Could he have been killed in the war? how do I find that out? This doesn't tell us any more about Mary Hannah, but she was thought to be about the same age as both the men, 1888/1889 and she died 1963 in Oldham. Don't know if all this is a bit to late for you but this Mary woman has me stumped. Hope you can shed some light, Gloria

Debbie, they are not obvious, where have they been found at other census times? Locations? They are probably mis-transcribed in the wrong name but need an idea where the might be Jess
