I am looking for a photograph of Frank Mountcastle b1903 d 1969 who married a Florence Kate Stubbs on 24 December 1942 in Spridlington. Frank Mountcastle was first married to Elizabeth McInnes Prentice and I am married to their child Cynthia Joan Ross nee Mountcastle .
If any descendants of Florence Kate Stubbs have a picture of Frank and Kate I would dearly love to have a copy.

Alan, have you checked for matches by using 'search all member trees' option from the search box above? If successful you can send a message to the tree owner.

There are quite a few Genes members with Frank Mountcastle born 1903 in Spridlington in their trees.

Use the "search" option as Jan has said and you will be able to send them all a message and ask if they have a photo.

Advised on above thread to use 'search all trees', as there are numerous entries for Frank

Florence Kate Stubbs claims she was 35 on her wedding certificate to Frank Mountcastle on 24 December 1942.

People did tend to lie a little on marriage certs to make themselves younger or older depending on the circumstances.

She may have said she was 35 so as not to look older than her husband

Whatever age she claimed to be there's no children listed for them.

She had siblings and so did Frank so check their families to see if they have any photos.

Again your best bet is to contact those who have them in their tree.through the search trees ,found by using the Search heading above the threads .this has been the advice given before.

BTW, Alan, it is contrary to site's guidelines to post actual DOB of living people..........please delete the info from your original message.

It isn't, in any case, likely to assist your search

I have checked on the Mountcastle side and no living relative has a photograph of Frank Mountcastle. So its over to the Stubbs side still no response from Stubb tree holders.

More siblings for Florence...there is also a marriage for a Thomas Stubbs to an Alice Exton in the same area in 1894 so one or two could be theirs??
