is anyone related to .

Thomas hinchliffe jones,born Oldham 1887,mother ann jones nee davies,no father listed.
Thomas was the only brother of my g grandfather john Edward jones.
I do not need any look up's , this is just in case someone may be his decendant.
the last I know of Thomas he was with john Edward and his family on the 1911 census.

Have you made contact with anyone who has Thomas Jones in their tree on here?


martynsue Report 9 Sep 2013 19:37

I have messaged everyone with a Thomas who's birth is near to mine.
most people have not answered so they must no longer be on this site.

Have you checked out the CWGC?
How about emmigration records?

Although GR have some passenger records, others primarily to the US and Australia can be found on Ancestry.

What do you wish to know?

If he didn't marry, he has no legitimate descendants

Have you looked for a marriage and'/or death?

As you have the birth cert.......what was his DOB?

hi reggie yes this is my greatgrand parent's & family.
Thomas was my great grandfather's brother,
his birth date was 23-03 1887.
I do not know if he married as there are so many Thomas jones marrying in Oldham,
I have tried looking for record's for ww1.
I was only trying to see if anyone on the site may have been a relation, but if he never used his distinctive middle name I do not hold out much hope of finding out what happened to him.
