I hope you get a reply

I'm in Uk don't have worldwide coverage so hard to find any data from West Indies .

You'd think they would be accessible at least when it was British West Indies

Such a sad story ..I hope you find him

You are allowed to post his deceased parents names ...which would help us

Have you tried looking for him or his descendants on any social media sites

Genes Reunited has quite a good section for looking for living people ...

Its nice that the other nephewsnieces are now in contact

My Russian great grandfather was a boarder age 20 in 1891
 above him was a 40 year old woman with same surname.

no indication of how they were related

Later found out it was actually his father before he anglisized his name ..

.the age had been put in box for female...we spent years looking for this mysterious ' woman ' until his fathers original name was found on Russian documents

I always keep notes of lodgers and boarders names ...a few occasions where marriages or babies occur later with connections

I've been in touch with a descendant of Joseph Moffat s first family

So here's some new infomration

His grandfather Joe Moffatt junior married Susannah Dowdell
"curiously according to what is written alongside the 1911 census Susannah Dowdell lived at 113 Conway St. although the census was taken at 20 Cecil Road Prenton where she is listed as a domestic servant. So perhaps that's where she met my grandfather."



Lizzie Lea lived 10 mins walking distance away in 1911 with her mother and JONES half siblings 

She had daughter Grace in 1912 so it seems likely that Joseph s children.Joe aged 21  lily aged 16 would have known about this second family .
