Susan Rowe Jordan
« on: Monday 18 December 17 13:43 GMT (UK) »
Hi,
For many years I have been trying to find my great great  Aunt ,Susan Rowe Jordan, b1854 Falmouth.
She was a prostitute in Falmouth as a young girl and I lost her in 1877 when she witnessed her sisters wedding. Someone has emailed me to say she may have married in South Africa in 1880,someone named George Gilbert. Anyone who could help with information on this couple, marriage details, children possibly,it would be great.
Thanks

Wow thatís is amazing. It all fits , but how would I verify if she was born in Cornwall, so I know that it indeed is her. The New Zealand census, does it give relationships and ages. Thanks again, this could be exciting news for our family
