The Mary Ann who died in 1903 was 86 and we have conflicting info re her parents. Died 23 and buried 26 March.

Father = James (Morris) - is Morris a middle name? and family name BIRCHAM or was Mary born before her parents married and mother was also named Mary Ann BIRCHAM?

When you eliminate the impossible, you are left with the truth...

You have two deaths with conflicting info, so it is one of those...

So, who's telling the truth?

:2fun:

I've tried FS and no luck with REH or the marriage.

Could be Ireland. :)

Any luck with master mariner search?
