1871 Lookup Please?

Lynne Report 27 Jul 2003 13:36

Could someone with access to 1871 census for Manchester please do a lookup for me. The household is Patrick Ford, approx 35, Elizabeth, approx 34 and Edward, approx 2. Patrick died before 1881 and Elizabeth re-married. I need to know where Patrick was born and I'm really struggling. Hope someone can help me with this brick wall. Thanks in advance. Lynne
