Hi, I am looking to find the marriage of Patrick Donaghue and Ann ??? I am unsure of year but their first born - James was born 1884/5 so sometime prior to that. Patrick was born 1858 in Ireland.

They are on the 1891 census - Linthorpe, Middlesbrough... their surname is mispelt as Donahue.

Can you offer me any information please?

Hi Sheila

Can you help with any of the following? If you are truly bored [and I think this may try your patience] I have a couple of people I am trying to trace with very limited success!

A death for Francis John Watts born Stoke Newington 1868/9 - he died between 1901 and 1916 [living in Sussex in 1901]

A death for Tony Vaughan Jones born abt 1885. Married Enid E Watts 1916. He was in 14th Rifle Brigade in WWI. May have been Anthony or Antony although Tony appears on Mge Cert.

Also any detail on his family. I know extremely little other than he was living in an hotel in Brighton when he marrried Enid. His father was Harold Reginald Jones and was noted as deceased on Tony's mge cert.

I know this is very little to go on but any clues however tiny would be appreciated.

Thanks Sheila
