LAKE SARAH 287/1855 V1855287 43A INFANT * 6 days old therefore ruled out

LANGHORNE SARAH A 443/1855 V1855443 43A INFANT * 3 years - died 5 and buried 6 June

LANHAM SARAH A 1707/1855 V18551707 43A INFANT * Maitland therefore ruled out

Can't see a baptism in NSW for LANGHORN(E) or similar.

Can't see a baptism in NSW for LONERGAN or similar.

I think LONERGAN is ruled out because there are lots of deaths in the NSW index with that spelling. It's not an odd one out and a variation of another name.

I think LANGHORNE is ruled out because almost all the variation of LOITERTON end in RTOR or RTON, a common early one in Lincolnshire being LIGHTERTON.

I think Sarah Ann has a younger sister who is not in my tree.


If Adam is not the father when and where did Ann end up and with whom?

Thanks gibbo.

Born 1832 is correct.

But can the marriage be found?

Adam died 18 May 1890.

I cant find a marriage Dave. I think maybe they never married, they were having kids way before Adam put the advertisment in the paper so she was obviously still married to him.

Case closed thanks.

Yes, I woke up to the birth I had posted. Still catching up with updating the database.

My tree is correct now with the right death for Ann.

Adam is out on a limb so McEwen is too far out to chase.
