Born where? is this a child of the Shepherd /Duffy marriage?


patchem Report 18 Apr 2013 18:55

Welcome to the boards, Marilyn.

What part of the country was he born in?


Parents married Croydon 1972?

Was Norah born in 1973?


brummiejan Report 18 Apr 2013 18:59

The marriage took place 1972 - are you sure the birth was as late as 1989?
There is a poss birth 1974.


Penny Report 18 Apr 2013 21:51

wouldn't have thought Norah was a 1970's name! Maybe it was.


brummiejan Report 18 Apr 2013 22:15

Well, her birth is there Penny!


Marilyn Report 21 Apr 2013 08:27

There is a male child (no name) born to Eileen Duffy in 1988. She was younger than her husband so he may have passed on and she used her maiden name.

So the birth is under Duffy not Shepherd?
What area are we looking at ?


patchem Report 21 Apr 2013 09:32

Do you know if the surname Duffy was definitely used, as she would be Mrs Shepherd at the time of birth?

Can you give us some more background on Eileen? Where was she from? Could she have married again? There are more possibilities if she married again.

Locations would be very useful.

Her granma was also called Norah born in 1921 Lancashire. 2 uncles found also Edward V and John J.


patchem Report 29 Apr 2013 18:57

Does the birth information that Misty sent you match with what you know?

Welcome to the boards Sylvia - its great if the young man you know is the same person.

As Marilyn is still a relatively new poster (6 posts to her name of which 5 are on here), click on her name to send a message. Hopefully she still has the same contact address and will be able to reply to you.

Fingers crossed that it all works out for them both and that it isn't just a coincidence

Sylvia did send me a PM on Friday when she said that she had sent a PM to Marilyn.

From what she said, it's highly probably that Marilyn's Norah is related to the young man Sylvia knows.

I've sent her another PM to reminder her that starting new thread is not the way to go about contact Marilyn this soon.
