Looking for Auntie Marge (Born 1930)and Jos.
« on: Monday 07 August 17 14:30 BST (UK) »
How do I find Auntie Marge and Jos?

Marge`s surname was Thorn....Do not know what Jos`s surname was.

All i know is that they lived in Warwick, opposite the Racecourse, with their disabled son Graham in approximately 1992.

Marge is now deceased and I would like to know more about her ie. When was she born and where was she born ?

As I have already said, she married Jos but all I know about Jos is his name...

Can anyone find out their wedding details and if they had any children?

Help please.

Was she a 'proper' auntie  :-\   

You say her name was Thorn, who were her siblings (only name those that are no longer alive.)

Hi Rosie99.

Can confirm that she was born in 1930

Her only sibling I know of was Percival Norman Thorn born in 1931.

I can find a Margaret Thorn who married a Henry T Toney Sept.1951 Warwick - they appear to have had a number of children which I can't name as probably all still living but you can easily find them yourself in Births Index i.e. under Toney, mmn Thorn.    I can say that one of them was a son with the name you mentioned.

Margaret Toney b.13/10/1930, d.1986 (so before 1992) and her husband Henry Thomas Toney b.5/4/1927 d.Aug.2000, both in Warwick.

(Clearly Marge and Jos are nicknames you knew them by and not proper names).

This is definitely the right Margaret Thorn - Winifred was a widow or divorcee (Winifred Bonehill) when she married Oliver G. Thorn in Dec.1929 Stratford.   Winifred Smith had married a William T. Bonehill in Dec.1921 Stratford.
