London and Middlesex / The mysterious Miss Cushway
« on: Tuesday 07 August 18 15:31 BST (UK)  »
I am hoping someone can find where and when she was born.
Kathleen E Cushway married Frank A R Cleverley Sep 1951 Bethnal Green. They had two sons born 1952 and 1954 with mmn Cushway. Electoral records show them living in Clapham 1952-65. The 2003-10 Electoral Records show them on Nutwell St, London and Kathleen birth year 1927-29. Frank death registered 2005 Kennington and Chelsea. No death shows for Kathleen and there is no probate record so there is a chance that she may still be living.
A check of travel and immigration records does not show her. The Cushway family seems to be centered in the London area.
Frank was a 4 cousin so not excited abt buying marriage cert which would not show place of birth anyway.

Sussex / Mary Ann Drugate
« on: Tuesday 31 July 18 18:08 BST (UK)  »
Mary Ann Drugate married Thomas Ticehurst Dec 1837 Rye District. Possibly in Brede. Census show that she was born abt 1812 Catsfield, Sussex. I am having a problem with the surname. I can find no references to Drugate/Durgate/Durigate etc.
Anyone have any ideas?

United States of America / Florida death in late 1990's
« on: Friday 20 July 18 22:33 BST (UK)  »
Can someone tell me how to find a death in Florida likely in the late 1990's please. I am looking for the death of Audrey Venuta born 1924 Michigan. According to sibling obits she died between 1988 and 2012. I think she shows up in the Sarasota area in the mid 90's. so far I have drawn a blank.

Argyllshire / Ethel and John Holdsworth
« on: Tuesday 17 July 18 01:53 BST (UK)  »
Would like to trace Ethel and John if possible. Info I have is partly official and partly family lore.
Ethel Lowery was born 17 Nov 1910 Lincoln, England. John's birth unknown. They married in 1940 in Lincoln and abt 1967/68 moved to Scotland and eventually made their way to Islay. Evidently John(Jack) was a Clerk of Works(?) and Ethel attended church in Bowmore. No one knows when Ethel died but John may have died in 2012. This info came to me through a couple of people so may have lost something in translation.
Did they go to Islay and if so is there a death record that I can get? John's age at death may help me find his birth. Ethel is a 4th cousin so pretty far out on the branch

New Zealand Completed Requests / Irene Lowery died NZ?
« on: Monday 16 July 18 01:39 BST (UK)  »
I would like to find out if Irene died in New Zealand and if so where and when.
Irene Ketteringham was born 1921 Lincoln England. She married Frederick Arthur Lowery 19 Dec 1945 in Lincoln and they departed to New Zealand 9 May 1947. I have been told that Fred and Irene divorced abt 1978 and that Fred remarried. I know that Fred died 19 Jul 2000 in Auckland. Irene may have died abt 2011 but this is not a fact. I have no idea if she remarried or even stayed in New Zealand after the divorce.

London and Middlesex / Richard Bird abt 1883
« on: Tuesday 26 June 18 18:38 BST (UK)  »
Richard Bird married Elizabeth Lottie Maria Morling 1904 Romford, Essex. The 1911 census shows the family living in Ilford and Richard showing born abt 1883 Bow, London. There does not appear to be a birth registration for him.
There is a family in 1901 living in Grays Thurrock, Essex which may be his. Mother Grace(1859) and children Sybilla(1881),Richard(1883 Bow) and Gertrude(1891). Same family in 1891 Islington with head of house William B Bird and Richard showing (1884 London)
Gro birth index shows Sibylla birth registered 1880 West Ham with mmn Fredrick. The only other birth showing mmn Fredrick is an unnamed male 1881 West Ham who appears to die shortly after birth. Getrude birth does not show up.
I could not find Richard in 1939 but wife Elizabeth is in Margate with youngest daughter and showing that she is married. Elizabeth dies 1971 Margate.
I am wondering if Richard and Gertrude are adopted. A possible death for Richard is 1948 Deptford.

The Common Room / Mother of record
« on: Friday 25 May 18 17:18 BST (UK)  »
I have parents who show as having a child in 1924. They married in 1902 and had children in 1903/04 and 05. The 1904 birth was for a daughter. Because of the large gap in birth years my guess is that the 1924 birth was the 1902 daughter but no way to prove it. The mother of record could be the actual mother since she would have been 42 in 1924.
I assume that I have no choice but follow the records. How do others handle the 1924 birth
