I have 1881 Census information for Samuel Starkey. He was married in Jan 1881 and therefore was listed in 1881 Census with spouse - Mary Ann. I am trying to find out the name of his parents to determine if he is a brother of my gr grandfather - William. Samuel was apparently born August 28, 1861, and his parents may be William Starkey and Emma Brown. He was born in Shelfied Walsall and got married in Rushall Walsall and apparently died November 19, 1925. The person who gave me this information cannot remember where she found it, she just wrote down the information. Any help would be greatly appreciated Thank you
