After that John is ok.

A few died young.

Next

Thanks Geoff.

I didn't look as far as Liverpool for possible marriages.

Jane would be the HODSON reg Emeltee found. Born before 1840 marriage.

That's three out of five fixed this time around.

I've started looking for Elizabeth in 1871 and 1881, and married in 1891 and not having much luck so far.

Thanks Geoff.

Mageley does not find them in FS. But then again 1891 does not allow birth year range input.
