Hehe! Not my colleagues - I dont work for genes, I'm just one of those search addicts who gets drawn in very easily!!


Raymond Report 28 Aug 2010 23:08

you know what i mean!!! its so adictive.I need to get some shut eye, but if you want to continue, and I really do appreciate it, please do. I think the Usher side might be more fruitful working from Francis/Mary anns kids, my mum seems to think there are still some close relatives around.
My aim for both families has been of course to get the info for her, but also I would love to find someone who has photos of my grand parents. I have been working on my late dads side and we have had more success that side. We seem to have lost Astra!!!! I might not be about much tomorrow but I will try to catch up tomoz nite. see you soon and again thanks


Raymond Report 28 Aug 2010 23:10

why Layston I think that is near Ware Herts so I suppose the closeness? If Sarah is his sister St Neots isnt that far either


Janice Report 28 Aug 2010 23:11

Have just found your Usher thread. Someone there has found the reference for Francis Edward's birth, so you will be able to order the cert now. You know it's the right one because the baptism of the twins confirms the parents' names.


Raymond Report 28 Aug 2010 23:14

i will order it tomoz, a deep memory of searching I seem to think that George Usher cames from Wicklow Ireland, dont where I got that from


Janice Report 28 Aug 2010 23:29

Oh wow! That's really exciting. Good luck and hope you get some photos.
Report back wont you!!

You need to delete that e-mail address from here though - you shouldn't put it into the public domain.


Raymond Report 28 Aug 2010 23:34

make sure you tell your mate ASTRA, and dont worry, a full report as soon as, nite nite, defo going now


Astra Report 29 Aug 2010 06:09

Morning both I see you have been busy over night. Great Job.
I shut down last night as had other things to do but I've caught up with you I think this morning.
As I'm away next week I'm really thankful that the Annie and Mary saga has been resolved at least until the certificates arrive to confirm or dispute the findings! Although I am 99.9% sure we are correct I can't achieve that extra 0.1% until you have the papers in your hand and confirm the details for us. I will be in and out again today so will keep an eye on the boards but if I don't get back to you before you leave have a great time in the US Ray and I look forward to hearing from you on your return.

Astra all I can say is watch this space, have a good week.


Raymond Report 29 Aug 2010 08:38

Janice, correction to my assumption last night, the living relatives my mum would like to persue is COSBYS, she thinks there is a line of them still living in the Welwyn Garden City area, but that is as much as she knows, it is my interset in the USHER side, speak to you later on hopefully.


Janice Report 29 Aug 2010 09:54

Does your Mum remember any of her cousins? I've found a son for Fred and Ellen called Kenneth born 1928. He married a Patricia and they had 3 boys Peter, Mark and Paul in Hertfordshire.


Raymond Report 29 Aug 2010 10:14

i will give her a call later


Raymond Report 29 Aug 2010 10:29

spoke to her she rekons spot on, remembers fred, home in on this thread.There was another Kenneth she remembers the son of Harold poss. going out now for the day, I cant wait to get back and hopefully Ted will have emailed me some of his info by then.


Janice Report 29 Aug 2010 14:31

Did Harold marry Ellen Euling? If so, the children were Harold and Edward.

And did Doris marry Percy Keightley?


Janice Report 29 Aug 2010 21:11

Here's another one to e-mail:

Search for Harold Cosby

There's one born 1900 in the tree of 'Warren'.


Raymond Report 29 Aug 2010 21:17

Hi I am back. A great email from Ted with a picture of Alice, Mary, Daisy back in 1947, but very little info, so I have sent back asking if he knows anything about Daisie dad, but I think we are on the right tracks,he has tried to research but got confused by the different spellings, but then again he didnt have a Janice or Astra helping him. I will email Warren tree now. I have no info on partners of Haroldor doris, only Florence she married 1917 herbert james pope then 1920 wallace young


Janice Report 29 Aug 2010 21:30

Warren might know something about Harold if it's the same Harold.


Raymond Report 29 Aug 2010 21:37

emailed warren. As I said we know very little of the families comings and goings, no one spoke to each other, I think we may have found out why, dont you.I think John was a bit of a wanderer.


Janice Report 29 Aug 2010 21:39

Is this the missing Kenneth?

Wallace and Florence had Florence in 1921, Jean in 1923 and then there's a Kenneth in 1933 who could be theirs.


Janice Report 29 Aug 2010 21:41

What about Annie's oldest, Annie Rouse born 1885. Anything known about her?
