Hi

Not the easiest name to work with..

Looking to confirm Gladys' birth, bap and parents.

There are 2 birth reg. entries; 1891 and 1892 Madeley, Shropshire.

In 1911 she looks to be with her widowed g'father, Joseph. They are in Ironbridge, Shropshire. Not attempted to check through Joseph's line yet, he was b. in Llanelly :rolleyes:

Just to complicate matters she looks to have d. 1959 Bridgnorth aged 77y, which would make her DoB c1882 :rolleyes:

Not found Gladys in 1901 yet.

Many thanks.
Geoff

So in 1881 the FM Jones must be FW Jones and that is the eventual father of one of them, unless an error somewhere :rolleyes:
