Mollie C Hacking and Ronald G Hacking

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Effie Report 14 May 2015 23:02

I have been looking for my cousins for a long time namely Mollie C Hacking b.3/1937 Shardlow Derbyshire and Ronald G Hacking b.9/1938 Birmingham. I havn't seen them since I was small and they did live in Luton Bedfordshire, I last saw their Mother my Aunt Ivy May Hacking (nee Ott) in 1980's in Luton Bedfordshire but do not know if Mollie did get married and last heard she was living near Luton as she usually took her mother to Milton Keynes now and then. I would like to know if she got married or what happened to her. As for Ronald he did go out to South Africa with his father but havn't heard any more. Ivy was an Ott but she married Henry Edward Bennett b.1906 Brixton London in 1926 Lambeth London but sadly he died soon after so she met and married George W Hacking in 1939 Birmingham Warwickshire. So I would be grateful if you could help me with this one.

Effie Lewis (nee Ott)

You had previous threads on this.

Did you act on any of the advice?

I have Ivy's last address, it is a care home.
If you wanted to contact them, you could ask either to be put in touch with her next of kin OR the funeral home.
But you will have to state your relationship etc due to data protection.

sent contact data
email or telephone contact available

Why are you asking now, Effie, when you were given the address in 2011?

Ivy's Estate went to Probate.

Search for it on then order a copy on that site at a cost of £10. It will be ready to down load to your computer in c2 weeks or even less.

With a bit of luck the Executor will be a relative, and will name other relatives as her heirs. If Molly has married, it might give her new surname.

Hi Effie
My mother was Mollie C Hacking and her brother was Ron. Her mother was Ivy May Ott.
it would be great to find out more about my mother's early life and family!

Welcome to GR, Lisa

As Effie posted over 4 years ago, she may not be expecting a reply. Try contacting her off-board by clicking on her name. You can then send a private message.

As long as her account is linked to an email address she can access, she'll receive notification & be able to reply.

Do be aware that Genes does not delete dormant accounts & that she may be too frail or otherwise unable to reply.

Lisa if there is no response to your message here, try Ancestry trees. If my memory serves me right Effie may have had a tree there at one time ( as mentioned in posts by another member now deceased but linked to the Ott family?)

see previous thread by Effie for earlier info

and this one ( among others) by Yvonne who I believe was connected to Effie. ( edit yes she was as mentioned here )
