Nyx Report 3 Dec 2017 23:33

well spotted Malyon I was looking for mmn Bowden but Cleevely is correct, as Bowden is married name


Darealjolo Report 3 Dec 2017 23:40

Donna was born with surname Harvell? Mmn was Cleevely not Bowden?
Yes Brockworth is in Gloucestershire.
Malyon how do you Donna was adopted please?
Thank you both


malyon Report 3 Dec 2017 23:42

the S by the reg number means adopted


Darealjolo Report 3 Dec 2017 23:45

Ah yes i see that now Malyon on Ancestry.
Dam didn't know she was adopted, this makes harder for me now.


Darealjolo Report 3 Dec 2017 23:56


What year did you find the marriage please?

Thank you


Darealjolo Report 4 Dec 2017 00:21

Who had the surname Bowden if married name please? I can not find a marriage for Mary and Robert.


Darealjolo Report 4 Dec 2017 00:34

Where does the surname Cleeveley come from?
Getting confused now lol
I thought Mary married around same time Donna was born.


Darealjolo Report 4 Dec 2017 00:41

I found that Mary married in 1969 to a Michael Bowden, so that is where Bowden comes from :)


patchem Report 4 Dec 2017 07:38

As Mary was born around 1950 then perhaps you should contact her for further details?

Or are you asking in Genealogy Chat because you know she has died?


Nyx Report 4 Dec 2017 13:56

sending a PM so as not to put details on board, of marriages and poss location of Mary.

Would advise a very cautious approach if one is made at all.


Darealjolo Report 4 Dec 2017 22:21

patchem i would not know how to contact Mary as would not know how to find her.
I don't know if she has died.


Nyx Report 4 Dec 2017 22:27

The 2014 eroll address I pmd does not appear to have been sold since , so if the right Robert and Mary , they may still be there.


Darealjolo Report 4 Dec 2017 22:33

Yes they may still be there Nyx, thank you for that information


JoonieCloonie Report 8 Dec 2017 17:43


please delete the 1992 marriage info

Would YOU want your marriage details posted at this site?

by people talking about you behind your back on the internet where anyone can find it?

when the discussion is about something as sensitive as this?

Honestly, I despair sometimes.

Darealjolo, you might want to consider editing some of the personal info out of your opening post and other personal info about as well. Just a little TMI (too much information) about people's personal affairs.

Patchem was being discreet, and suggesting that unless we know someone is deceased, this kind of detail is not appropriate here.


Nyx Report 8 Dec 2017 18:04

For ref, have edited somewhat as Darealjolo now has sufficient info to make contact via address or FB if she decides to do so after she has given the matter due consideration :-)


Darealjolo Report 12 Dec 2017 14:38

Im not quite sure what i have put down as TMI ?
I do not know if any one is deceased either, im not looking for a death.
