Hello Janet, welcome to the boards.

Seeing as you know the dates of his birth and marriages would you mind sharing them, and their location?

He did get hi8s skates on didn't he Tracey! I am assuming it is the same man of course.

Somebody has Dulcibella (great name!) in their tree. Interestingly Thomas is hidden as if living (surely not!). I know it's off-plan, but there is this re. probate, might be of interest:

If Florence is the daughter of Thomas's first marriage, she married a man named Colin Bunn (i won't add the details as Florence and Colin, it appears, are still alive).

According to the ER Colin (83) and Florence (78) were alive and well as recently as 15 Oct 2012. It would be wrong of me to state anything other than the facts i have from the ER.

There is no reason as to why they are not still alive and well.... but i hate to give details other than facts.

Florence being the child of your Uncle is your Cousin.

I am happy to give you the details i have, but caution must be taken if/when contacting this couple due to their age.

Florence may well know more about her father Thomas.
