Here is what I have on Mary Milam.  Marriage to George Horton on Dec 24, 1917 in Ash, Surre.  She is listed as Mary Tanner (widow) father (Henry Milam Deceased).  She immigrated to Canada with George and her son Edwin Milam who was known to the family as Edwin Dorset.

Not sure if this is the same Mary, but a lot of the names match up.

George DORSETT (b1874 Reading) m Mary White MILAM (b1880, Finchampstead) in Reading in 1906.

George died in Wallingford in 1909.  Can anyone tell me anything at all about Mary or her family? I believe she was the daughter of George and Mary MILAM of Finchampstead.

Hello,
I can't help with Mary Milham but I can tell you where George Dorsett died. It wasn't in Wallingford itself but in Cholsey.  I have him on my tree but I do not have a marriage for him.  His father came from Princes Risborough in Bucks and his mother was one of the huge Nash family from Aldermaston.  If you send me a private mail I will give you details of George Dorsett's burial.
Regards
Vicwinann

Hello

Have not got marriage cert but entry on BMD for marriage December 1906. There are quite a lot of MILAMS in Finchampstead but Mary b1880 belongs to the family of George b1843, Finchampstead and Mary Unknown (Poss WHITE?) b1856 Winkfield, Berks - or at least she appears to; she is the best Mary on offer on the census entries I have looked at.  The census entry states Mary b abt. 1880 Finchampstead.
Hello again,
In order to know for sure which of the two men, George Dorsett or William Brayne, that Mary White Milham married, you must get the certificate or find a Parish Register marriage. Otherwise you are guessing and whistling in the wind, I am afraid.  George Dorsett could have married Matilda Goodenough.
From the posting by MrsPooh it sounds like Mary might have married George Dorsett, but you need proof. An Edwin Milham was born in 1901 in Windsor reg dist (covers Winkfield) who could be an illeg son of Mary, but again only "could." You need the certificates.
Regards
Vicwinann

I have the birth certificate for Edwin Milam born 8 Jan 1901 which does not list a father but Mary Milam as the mother.

When Mary immigrated to Canada, her brother Frank Milam (listed as her destination location) was already living in Ontario.  The research done on Frank in Ontario includes a birth (Feb 2, 1887) in Wokingham, Berkshire, England in his military records.

Hello Vicwinnan and Mrs Pooh.

I started this query after I noticed George's marriage to Mary when I was in Berks Records Office looking for something else. It was a surprise to me, I had not known he was married, nor that he had died so early in life. He was my grandmother's (Fanny Dorsett) only brother and her son was named after him.

I would be very grateful Vic if you are able to give me any more info on George's death, especially burial place and date. If you are related to the Nashes, I have a photo that is of, I believe, Henry Nash and his wife, George and Fanny's aunt and uncle. You are welcome to a copy of it.

I hope to hear from you. Thanks and best wishes.

Have just remembered. George's youngest sister, Nellie (b1883, Reading m Tom Morgan) also emigrated to Canada in 1912.  Is there a connection here? Can anyone tell me?
