Jean Report 23 Dec 2004 16:14

Hi Kal, Could you do a great favour and look up Fillongley for me, please? I am trying to find anything at all about Joseph Gilman, gardener. (not sure of the spelling). That is all I know about him, except that his wife's name might be Ann, but his son George dob c 1808 was there in 1871 and I'm hoping that he was there in 1861 and that Joseph was living with him in his old age. I'd be grateful for anything. Cheers, Jean

TB Report 24 Dec 2004 12:28

Hi Kal, Thanks for looking for me. I will have to see if I can link the names you gave in my tree. I would assume that they are possibly related as all the Burtons in my family so far were from Coventry starting from my Gt Grandad to his 3x gt grandad born before 1800. Thanks for the info and have a great Xmas. Trixie
