Robert John sen and junior yet marriage and shipping record has just Robert.

Marriage has Fanny Ann but death is reg as Fanny Elizabeth.

A tree has

Joseph married Florence May Boardman 1902, at age 22 ...

But the marriage was in 1904. So born 1882?

Can't see a death for the one born on the voyage.

Dave
 
McCONNELL Rebecca 15
McCONNELL Nancy 21
McCONNELL Mary Jane 17
McCONNELL Martha 19

They are listed under 'Free' not 'Assisted' as with the others.

M= Marine birth

7 May 1880/M1113 Joseph Paterson McConnell - Robert - Fanny Hunter


Searching using that middle name get hits in America.

If the tree is correct with Joseph being 22 when he married then it would seem the one 'bv' died and another named Joseph William was born abt 1882. But, age a death points to 1880. ???
