Is the info of any use?

And the evidence shows - as I stated - only ONE marriage for the lady. Assuming that you have the 'right' Ellen Lemon. She DIED as ETHERINGTON

How did you work back to her?

Have you tried doing research on freebmd?

Is THIS the death you think is the right person?

Deaths Dec 1925 (>99%)
Etherington Ellen C 86 Devizes 5a 113

If it is, why do you have an 'H' at the start of the name in your post?


Reggie Report 3 May 2013 11:48

You jump from one topic to another, with no apparent logic..................we are as confused as you seem to be.............

Your post does not make much sense, I'm sorry to say.................


Reggie Report 3 May 2013 11:45

What NAME was she using when she DIED?

You MUST give PROPER info if you want people to help you

WHY do you think she married HETHERINGTON?

patchem Report 23 Apr 2013 17:58

I do not understand what you mean by 'no reply' and 'comes up zero'.

How did you get back to John Stringer - who was his son or grandson or great-grandson or other relative that you know you are related to?


patchem Report 21 Apr 2013 16:33

How did you get to John Stringer?
Which of his descendants are you related to - or what connection to get to him?

If Ann Hawley was born about 1679 it is unlikely that she married in 1692 at age 13.

Who died in Burgh la marsh and who died in marsh surry, north carolina?
I think someone has been making incorrect assumptions to get the marsh near Skegness mixed up with the marsh in America.


Yvonne Report 21 Apr 2013 15:08

HI sorry abt this, i can not get any where with john stringer born abt 1679, in shillington, beds, did he marry twice to a mary impey, and ann hawley. i have found two family trees but i do not know if they are right, one say he marry mary impeyabt 1704 shillington, beds, one say he married ann hawley, born abt 1679beds. married in 1692 july hogsthorpe, chl john born 1698 hogsthorne. died in aug 1743 in burgh la marsh, married saline good, in 1725died 1769 marsh surry ,north caroline u s a ,any help please, thank you so much for any help you give me, yvonne,


patchem Report 21 Apr 2013 00:16

You have put that the children are:
' richard born 1593, d abt 1650.
elizabeth born 1698.
ellen born1585.
richard born 1625 shillington ,beds marr a mary'

Please can you correct what you have written as the children cannot be born more than 100 years apart.
Is Elizabeth born 1598 not 1698?
Is Richard not a child but a granchild, or related in some other way?
