Hi Helen

It appears that the child John McGILL, named in the Army file of Thomas James WALSH, was in fact the natural child of Thomas McGILL and his wife Laura Serena McGILL (nee HUDSON).

Please see the Probate file for > Thomas McGILL - of Seddonville, Westport - Coal Miner - Year:  1913.

https://familysearch.org/search/collection/1865481

The statement made by Laura Serena McGILL (December 1912, days before her marriage to Thomas WALSH), gives the reason why there was a delay in her application to administer the estate of her late husband Thomas McGILL.    It also gives the names of her children (as at Dec. 1912) :

- Thomas McGILL - now aged 23
- Florence Elizabeth - now aged 20
- Robert Hudson - now 17
- John - now 11

[Thomas McGILL died at Seddonville on 4 October 1907.    Laura Serena was therefore a widow at the time of marrying Thomas James WALSH on 26 December 1912. ]

Report of the marriage of Alice Adeline to James Baldwin, in a double ceremony with her sister. [Bridegroom named Hamilton, an error? Should be Hambleton?]

Hi
Thank you for the information. I think that it is meant to be HAMBLETON not Hamilton. I did not know that there was a double wedding.
