Hi,

I am looking for any living relatives of James Holcomb born around 1806, his son Peter Holcomb born in 1856. Peter then had Percy Holcombe (name changed) in 1884 who had my grandfather, Peter Charles Holcombe in 1923. If anyone has any matches to these names I would be grateful if you could get in touch.

Kind regards,
Ruth Holcombe

You would need to research Peter and his wife to see if they had any siblings and if these married etc
