    Hi Sandy 1982 - That is SO kind of you - Thank you! :) I am STILL having trouble unraveling the mystery surrounding Frank Walter Odell - I have made some progress, but not much. He actually moved from Sandy to Middlesex where he remained for the rest of his life. Some of his family moved...

    Help interpreting overseas death record!

    Of course. Thank you. Death is 1979 - (cousin of my mother in-law who committed suicide in Italy). I began to construct my husband's tree having completed my own and almost immediately became stuck just one generation back when I couldn't find a death record for him. His name was Peter Allen...

    Help interpreting overseas death record!

    Hello, I have an overseas death record for a possible relative of mine (or rather my husband) and where it usually states the country of death, it instead says 'shipping' - does anyone know what this means? Thanks!

    Frank Walter Odell Brick Wall - Help!!

    I really appreciate your help with this. Sometimes when someone else looks at it from a different angle you see new things! I think you might be on to something there and I am going to look at it in more detail.. The thing that's stumping me is that Thomas Young jnr was born in abt 1882 so...

    Frank Walter Odell Brick Wall - Help!!

    sorry - don't know how that happened - last message posted twice! Anyway, yes - if you look closely you can see that it is a transcription error. The Langleys lived next door. Next to their address is Thomas Young's name, then Martha's then the children who are all Young. (at least, according...

    Frank Walter Odell Brick Wall - Help!!

    That's right. In order to try and find some information, I have assumed that the 1855 Martha Wellbelove from Windsor is the same Martha Young from Windsor in the 1901 census. Yes, I think that Ann Probale and Ann Proberts are the same person. I looked for a marriage between Martha Finney and...

    Frank Walter Odell Brick Wall - Help!!

    Thanks - I have that information also. Yes, she was born 1895 district. Brentford. I have found Thomas and Martha Young (her parents in 1901 and 1891) but am having trouble going back further. I can't read the maiden name of Martha on Emma's BC (picture that I posted).. Maybe the name is...

    Frank Walter Odell Brick Wall - Help!!

    Here is a copy of Emma Louisa Young's (my G. Grandmother) BC. Can anyone read the maiden name of her mother? I can see Martha Young formerly ???? I was wondering if I could trace her family further I might get some clues as to where she may have been in 1911 and how she may have met Frank a...

    Frank Walter Odell Brick Wall - Help!!

    Yes - I have Frederick's service records too!! We don't know if there was a middle name or not. Everyone believes not, but after the eye opening things we've discovered recently, who knows?? :o

    Frank Walter Odell Brick Wall - Help!!

    Yes I have that information thank you. Sandon is a typo - it should be Sandy. George Butcher is a brother in law of William - Emily's maiden name was Usher although her parents are listed as Clark in the census. (Her mother had Emily before she married and became a Clark - Emily then took the...

    Frank Walter Odell Brick Wall - Help!!

    Of course you are right. His birth could have been registered (or not) at a different time. While he was alive, he was told his birthday was 23rd January 1918. He was a couple of years younger than my grandmother and they were very close. We recently found out that Frank had a sister also...

    Frank Walter Odell Brick Wall - Help!!

    wow - that's a LOT of information on an Odell family. But no, that is not mine. juliejtp - I looked at that Frank as well, but USA wasn't right. Davelambert271 - I have looked under Young for Albert (his son) and no luck there. Arthur I don't think is right either as my great uncle was born in...

    Frank Walter Odell Brick Wall - Help!!

    thank you for the help! Yes, I have the above information just as you do - but that is as far as I have been able to get. The 1911 census you sent me I don't believe is the correct one as none of the other family members match. Also, he was living in Acton, Middlesex from 1891. His father's...
