CLARKE Annie England Shropshire, Wellington (Shropshire) 1915

There are a few possible assuming the birth was where she was born.

Sandra married under her birth name so eliminate & has a GRFT
Eileen J can not see a marriage in Shropshire

What Fairthorn means is There is someone by the name of Sally who has a tree on here with

Annie Clarke 1915 Shropshire, Wellington

Sally also has you so it seams so she could be known to you

Mary

Mary Report 27 Feb 2014 15:32

Hi thanks for your reply, yes i have seen Sally's tree but she is not an immediate relative to the Clarke family,and some of the names in her tree are incorrect,so i don't think she will know anything about Annie who was my dads sister. thank you anyway. Mary.

Mary is still looking for Annie. She says in a new thread,

Hi, sorry but i'm still searching for Annie born Oakengates Shropshire 1915 and i think she died 1979 in Chester. thank you regards Mary


As RamblingRose has told her on the new thread, it's best if all info is kept together, on this thread.

Is Mary looking for Annie or Annie's daughter? Or both?

ArgyllGran

ArgyllGran Report 5 Aug 2014 21:59

Mary, in this thread you are looking for Annie's daughter, but in your new post you say you're looking for Annie.

Do you mean you want info about her parents, siblings, etc? Or are you still really looking for the daughter - which is pretty much impossible to narrow down?

As Oakengates is in the Wellington registration district, the birth of Annie which others have suggested above seems likely:

Not that that helps with info about Annie herself, or the child.

I don't see a death for an Ann or Annie Clarke in Chester in 1979.

What reason do you have for thinking she died then - have you found a record of it, Mary?
Did she have the same surname, or had she married?

patchem

patchem Report 5 Aug 2014 22:09

With Annie's exact birth date you can narrow down possible deaths.

If you are looking for an adopted child have you put your name on the adoption register?

Mary Report 6 Aug 2014 18:48

Hi Patchem, thank you for your reply ,no i have'nt put my name on the register,i didn't know there was one.I only know that she was born in 1915 ,i was only about 14 the last time i saw her in the 60's and all the family from that generation have all gone now so there is no-one left to ask so i am rearly stuck as to where to look.i have all the census up untill 1911 but they are to early for Annie .i found out that her daughter had been to where Annie was born looking for any family .as we are all pensioners now it would be nice to trace her, and answer her questions about her mom. regards Mary
