Hi Debbi; Is James the Hughes or Ann? I'm mixed up sorry. I have found a couple of marriages where Ann Hughes has married a James, haven't check the dates yet. Strange, I have actually found a Jane Monk Hughes married in Bristol! Yes, I do sleep, i'm 7 hours behind you, so when you are getting up I'm going to bed. Teresa

Hi Laurie; The only Zachariah Cook is in 1589. There is a Walter Cook in Beaufort, Mon 1860 with parents William and Anna Maria. Maybe this is a sibling. No luck on John Skelton. No luck on Alice Rody either. There are lots of Roddy in Ireland though.

Hi Teresa Could you look up a marriage for me please. A John Salmon married Maria Joslin possibly in the Polstead/Hadleigh areas where they came from. Would hazard a guess at approx 1869/70 as their eldest know children was born 1871 in Hadleigh. John was born approx 1844 and Maria approx a849. Many thanks for your time. Liz

Hi Elizabeth; Sorry no luck for John and Maria. I also looked at births to see if I could find any children with parents of those names.

Hi Teresa, Just wanted to say thanks again, you've given me some ages on the marriages which should help me confirm if they're "mine" or not!! Isn't it time you took a break? Go and have a coffee or something!!! Thanks a lot! Sarah

Laurie Report 21 Oct 2003 23:26

Hi Teresa, Thanks for looking, was just wondering if you could try a different spelling? It may be Zecheriah Cook or Cooke in either Gloucs or Chepstow June 1857. Thankis again Laurie

Hi Janice; The VRI is the Brithish Vital Records Index of births and marriages. I have the second edition which consists of 16 discs (13 birth, 3 marriage). There are about 12.5 million records of varying amounts for each county.

Hi Laurie' The only Cooke is Monm at that time is Walter 1860, parents William and Anna Maria, No luck in Glos either I'm afraid. Lots of Cookes but no Zechariah. The computer automatically brings up all the different spelling variations.
