The only problem I see is Williams occupation but I myself would'nt worry to much about that he may of been an architect for a short time or just lied. Started as an agri. lab but I don't think that was his job at the arsenal, they made bombs.

I need to read through these when I'm not quite so tired because there are a lot of Ravens flapping about! ;)

I was having trouble with the occupation, because William Raven seemed to flit from being a farm labourer, to an architect, to a gardener, to a baker!

I definitely had Walter down as a sibling, so we certainly agree there, and I had a feeling, from my own research, that Sarah may have died not long after Emily was born and that William remarried, which would allow Maria Raven into it, too. But I'd have to refer back to my notes for that.
