thanks Selina :-)

I do think that might be my John whose burial you found in 1851. It looks like he left a widow, a third wife Elizabeth? Who shows up on the 1861 and 1871 Scaldgate census reports. He would have married her after Ann died in 1830. Do you happen to see a marriage for him and Elizabeth in Whittlesey?

thanks so much :-)

He didn't wait long to marry his second wife after Mary died, so it's no surprise really ;-) Based on the ages of Elizabeth on the census reports it looks like she was born around 1790. She would have been about 40 when she married John. At least he wasn't robbing the cradle :-)

i really appreciate your time Selina!!!
thanks again  :D
