Is it worth trying to get the photo dated on the photo board, although with only two years between the bros. it may not help.

Many thanks Mike, davidft and avm228 for all the information and guidance.

I'm trying to fit all the jigsaw pieces together but I doubt if I'll ever be 100% sure. I'm hoping to see the relative who has the "Jonah" photo over Xmas and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we might be able to shed a bit more light on things.

Once again, many thanks.

I don't know if this will mean anything to you or not.
I have Jonah Peaceful on my Family Tree.  He was born July 23, 1906 in Wellington, Shropshire.  He died in 1986. in Wrekin, Shropshire.  His wife was Edith Ann Harper born in 1899  in Donnington Wood  She died in 1947 in Wellington, Shropshire.  They were married in 1932 in Newport, Shropshire.  The connection with me is through the  Humpherson Line.  My Grandparents come from Donnington Wood, and my grandfather was a coal miner.

Kind regards,

Doris Baaudoux

Dear Doris.

Many thanks for your message.

Your Jonah Peaceful is the son of Jonah Peaceful (b. 1875, d. 1939) and Ada Griffiths (b. 1874, d. 1949).

Jonah Peaceful senior was one of my grandmotherís (Elizabeth Louisa Peaceful) brothers so that would make him my great uncle.

Iíve currently got details of two of young Jonahís siblings (although there may be more). He had two sisters, Florence May Peaceful (b. 1900) and Ada Louisa Peaceful (b. 1903).

If you have any more information Iíd be delighted to hear it.

Iíve been having a quick look at some of your posts on RootsChat and the name Ferraday rang a bell with me. My mother knew an Ida Ferraday whose father had the chemist shop in Oakengates. I think Ida or her father (or possibly both) might be buried in Wombridge churchyard. Please let me know if you think that there is a connection. I shall be in that area over Christmas (my mother is also buried there) and if I can find a headstone Iíll take a photograph for you.   

Thank you so much for contacting me.

Kind regards

Paula.
