It is helpful if you tell us all you know.......saves using time time to look for it

Research the daughter..........I posted her death. Or did you already have that as well?

Probable children (4) shown on freebmd. And the marriage of at least the eldest


Keith Report 5 Feb 2013 11:46

the daughter i knew of the others you mention the 4 possibles and the marriage ive no knowledge of those.


Reggie Report 5 Feb 2013 11:48

Keith, you must read what I post................

LOOK for the daughter's marriage......................I've given you the SURNAME of her husband

THEN......find HER children!
