Hello, I'm new to-day, so this is just a trial run. I've ben searching for a relative, Benjamin Pattinson Bawden, born near Whitehaven, Cumberland,UK. 1862, married Martha 1885, and disappeared around 1900/1901. Can't find any trace in UK records or military. He may have gone abroad. He may even have changed his name.
