Hi all
Just a update for you

I have sent away and got Williams death certificate he died on 18 June 1886 at 9 Vaughan Places Ruby Street, Old Kent Road, which is where the family lived when Martha was born in 1890, so it looks like William was not her father although Eliza had him down on birth certificate as Father, and that also goes for Thomas

I also told me that he was a Army Pensioner, so that is why he was on the Army records in, that maybe why I could not find him in the family home in 1881 etc

Once again thanks for all your help

Regards Marj

Will with William George Anthony Maloney

William George Anthony Maloney, yes he was William and Eliza Emily's eldest son, I do have a lot of info on him but not the Grave number etc, so thanks for that he died in Flanders France so this must by memorial for him I have copied it so maybe I can get a photo of it for my tree

Next Martha and Benjamin Harris, this ties in with other bits I have and have sent away for the marriage certif.

Next Robert William George Swain, I had the date of his birth but not death

Next Harry Lewis all I had on him was that he married Eliza Emily Moloney nee Buckhurst so many thanks on that info

Next Joseph Walter Lewis born 1896 have not found him on the 1901 census but have found this which ties in with him, Joseph Walter died in WW1 26 October 1917 Belgium and on the cwg site it gives his parents as Harry and Eliza Emily of 5 Galleywall Road Rotherhithe, but of course as the year of birth is 1896, he may not have been Eliza Emily's

Next Henrietta Harriet Swain I had no info at all on her only her birth so once again many thanks, so will now look for her family

Last William Moloney this man Haunts me the only death info is that is Eliza Emily re-married in 02/04/1902 , he must have died before then, as on Eliza Mary Edith Maloney's marriage lines on 10th Nov 1901 it gives him as deceased

Once again thanks for your help and will carry on try to find out more info from people on here who have the same names as me, and some have got back to me but many have not, so if they do not answer in a few days will resend them,

Thanks so much Reggie

Thanks for your help Reggie

Sorry not replied before but been away for a few days, and I had not notice that Eliza Mary was born in 1881 and it was before her parents were married, and to be honest I think Eliza Emily Moloney nee Buckhurst was a bit of a gal as a son and daughter who she has put down as father William Moloney was born after he died

The Eliza you have put in your post dated 8 Nov could well be her as I went to stay at 20 Ruby Street when I was 11 yrs old and it was with my great Aunt Eliza

And as for looking at others trees I have sent out many posts, and people do not reply, this does make me mad as we all should help each other, if i get a post I always reply even if they are not connected to my tree

But thanks for you help both of you
