Thanks for your very interesting reply.
This family is actually my son in laws family.
There are very few Knebels in NZ but we found an Emile in Gisborne, who was a merchant seaman.
We believe Richard may have originally been named Rudolph after his Father but WW1 changed that.
His brother Henry fought in WW1 for the British.
We believe that Richard married Alice Dutton in Eastborne in 1919 before they migrated to NZ. (have Marriage Cert).
Then we just have the info from the1891 census of Bethnal Green.
Just change the dot to . and the at to @ if you are interested.
Thank you for your reply nothing is ever too late.

US Lookup Requests / Re: Detroit Wayne, Michigan

Hi Bruce
Yes, thank you I have that info, I notice it also says he is with his 'cousin'
Albert arrived in Canada aboard the Dominion Line ship 'Sarnia' 30th Sep 1897. His occupation is shown as Labourer, which is understandable as he worked as a steam hammer operator in Swindon.
So I'm not sure where he became a soldier.
He made one return trip to England 25 Jul 1925 and gave his address as 18 Cricklade Road, Upper Stratton, which is just outside Swindon, where his remarried mother lived.

Thanks for your information

Hi again
Thank you very much for the additional information. It certainly clears up my confusion over the dates of Albert and Olives marriage and Josephs birth.
I suppose that because Joseph took the name Chummings he may have been formally adopted by Albert.
This is the address where I got my original Information regarding Olive, which records her as a Grand daughter of William Henry Barnum.

Thank you once again for helping me with this Family

Hi abcweir
Thanks for joining this thread. The time from the original post doesn't really matter, the reply is always gratefully accepted. It does, however, leave me in a quandry.
I had a private response from a member of the Barnum Family who gave me Olive Barnums parents as
Barnabus Barnum 2 Apr 1846-24 Jan 1907 of Ingersoll, Ontario and Eliza Ellen Snider 1856-1883. They married in Ingersoll on 24 Dec 1872.
Albert appears to have had two children
Mary Chummings 15 Jun 1899-17 April 1974 who died at 4805, Pontiac Michigan
Joseph Henry Chummings 30 Jan 1900-28 May 1975 born in Ingersoll died at 4805 Pontiac, Michgan.
Josephs SSN was 369-07-7698. His was registered for service in the U.S. during WW1. Card #2827-1972C21-2-6.
If your interest lies with the Chummings Family (who were really Chammings) I have a wealth of information I would willingly share.
Alberts Father was my 2x Gt Grandfather.

Thanks for your reply

Terry so many thanks for your efforts once again. Well I wonder if this headstone was damaged when the Church suffered damage during WW2.
You have increased my family knowledge tho', I now know Gt Uncle Fred was married, most of his life he was a seaman but he died at home in Petitor Road.
Thank you once again Terry I appreciate your help

Devon / Photograph of headstone in St Marys, St Marychurch
« on: Sunday 22 September 13 03:56 BST (UK)  »
Is there anyone who could locate and photograph a headstone in St Marys at St Marychurch?
My Gt Gt Grandfather was John Algate, born in Wembury but lived for many years in Furrough Cross, St Marychurch.
As a child during the '50's we spent our holidays in St Marychurch and I can remember my Grandmother telling me her Grandfather was buried there, as a 5-9 year old I didn't give it much thought but now it is of interest and would be gratefully received.
I can remember waiting for the bus into Babbacombe or Torquay outside St Marys.

Alderney, Guernsey, Jersey, Sark / Re: Carre Family
« on: Wednesday 12 September 12 09:04 BST (UK)  »
I do have Carre in my Family Tree but a little more info would be helpful as 'Helier' was a name passed through generations
Are we talking Helier Carre 1811 of Catel, a shoemaker?
Emilie born 1860
Lived at St Mary de Castro in Catel

Must be because Helier is still alive in 1891 and Emilie M  is shown as wife of Ernest Dodd, living with Helier. Ernest born in Forest 1862 and shown as a plasterer.
Florence A Michel is shown as their daughter aged 7.
Still at Landes, St Mary de Castro

I think, but not confirmed, that Helier is a son of Jean Carre (1786-1855) and Mary Torode (1788-1865). They married 10 May 1810.
Jean was a son of Jean Carre (1764-?) and Margaret Ozanne (1765-1814). They married 11 Jul 1786 at Catel.

As I say not 100% but I think this is the family you're looking for
