Thanks Sandra, hadn't tried the site myself for a while but had it in my notes as part of my search for Johanna Holland's burial.

The John Albert who died in 1927 is the James & had a brother named Simon I? [brother who registered the death] who strangely did not record his mother's forename...here is his probable death - a carriage maker - single so no marriage record for mother's name  :(

This reply is in reference to the Fraser family. In a earlier post, it was thought that James Fraser died in 1859. In this most recent post, the name Ellen has come up in this Fraser family ancestry. James and Ellen Fraser are listed in the 1871 and 1881 Census as are the children too. Ellen is also listed in the 1901 Census with her children still.

I just want to add one more item to my recent post. In the thread for William K, it list that James and Ellen married 8 Dec. 1850.
