I did post in the 1901 look up for this person but I am now beginning to think her year of birth was wrongly recorded. Can anyone find this person born abt. 1883. She may be at Kelloe/Quarrington Hill County Durham. If anyone could also have a look at the 1901 I would be extremely grateful. Thank you. Hr father is supposed to be a William.

Thanks Steve
I wonder if her father could have been Thomas William.. I have her marrying a George Snowdon in 1901 in Wheatley Hill This is very close to Kelloe/Quarrington Hill, she is named Margaret Ann born 1880 her father is William. They did't make things easy for us did they?
Many thanks
Ros

Thank you Steve sounds like the right family. Will ask my sister to check that for me as I'm not a member (she is fortunately)
Thank you for your invaluable help. Much appreicated.

Thanks again Steve, I think the North Shields one must be the one that Julie found for me in my post on the 1901 lookup. The Kelloe one seems to be the most likely soI'm going to follow that one up first. Thank you once again!
