I've been loooking to see what happened to a distant rellie Agnes Cubbage. Agnes mum Agnes nee Holmes died abt 1900 and my gt gt uncle remarried by 1901. I've never found James and Agnes marriage but at one time James was in the Army, so assumed it may have been under the army marriages. When the Irish 1901/1911 census came online I thought I'ld have a look, as far as I know no Irish. For some reason I when looking at different records I always put the name Cubbage in 1st and see whats comes up. Well a John James Cubbage came up for 1911 and 1901 county Fermanagh, grandson of a Holmes family. Tonight I found three military records on FMP, for my gt gt grandad and his 2 sons James and John. James's record showed that he had been in Ireland and one of the places was Enniskillen. Then I went onto the Irish Family Federation and a marriage came up for a Agnes Holmes and also a James Cubbage year 1896, so I think I've found James marriage :) . Whether the family were aware of young John I dont know, wonder why he was left in Ireland. Still looking for young Agnes.
