Looking for my dad's sister Mary Ellis nee O'Reilly born in 1930,Pendleton, Salford. Mary went missing in 1950's and my dad hasn't been able to find her again. We would love any information about her.

Did her husband 'go missing' also?

Did she have child(ren)?

There seem to be 2 Ellis/O'Reilly births after 1950, the first in Manchester and the 2nd in Liverpool.
There is also something showing for Ireland, but probably not relevant - I can't view with my level of Ancestry membership.
Have you any idea if they had children?

Jan, what do you think you've found in Ireland, I may be able to check it out?


Flip Report 30 Sep 2012 15:10

Do you have her birth cert for the exact dob - to try to find a possible death?

That looks like its in Q3,1954 in Dublin South, but thee are no more detials available on A* so don't think you are missing much Jan! Don't know what I'm paying for!!!

Sorry for the edit, I've got diislexic fingers!

Thanks for your responses, I do have Mary's DOB, my dad was her youngest brother and was very young when she left her family. I expect that she may have remarried at some point. Will continue to search.
