Hi, I'm trying to trace any living relatives of my grandfather Patrick John Coyne. He lived in Camborne Cornwall, had a brother called Frank and a sister who married a policeman called bullford.
He married a Ada Simmonds and they had a daughter called Marion.
Any help would be appreciated.
thanks
Jean

I can't see any births for either of Ada's marriages - so that's the end of that line, it would seem

Reggie Report 13 Jul 2012 22:43

I've just re-read you post and you say that Patrick was your grandfather.....so Ada must have been your mother.

Which means the info I posted must be inaccurate - you'd know all about Ada

Hi Reggie --- no , the info was correct, thanks. I think I'm going to have to concentrate on the Bulford side to see if I can get any info regarding Patricks parents
