Is it Bermuda or Bahamas?
I did notice on the marriage certificate Mary's father was John Bone
Rice. I'm thinking RN / Greenwich. Also noticed Edward C was a widower when he married Mary in 1868.
Deaths Mar 1867
Rice John Bone 53 Medway 2a 275
I wonder if John Bone RICE has a connection to Chatham Marine Barracks. ??? John's spouse might be a Charlotte Mary.

I had not searched for her at all. Just now 'mary croker rice' returns nothing. I can't find a tree with Mary.
I did search Templecombe on net and in 19C newspapers and only found the village in Somerset.
Why did I think I was finished with BONE? :2fun: How many generations of this family do I want?
