Louisa Harris
« on: Wednesday 14 February 18 10:30 GMT (UK) »
Trying to find the parents of Louisa Harris - born 1825 - in High Wycombe. She married Robert Dobner in 1848. I believe her parents were William Harris / Harriett, but would appreciate confirmation from anyone else researching the young lady.

Many thanks. I had looked at the marriage certificate, but only gave fathers name as William. Then looked on line for birth around that time of a Louisa with a father of William. Thank you for confirming that I was wrong. I can now amend the tree to show William and Sarah.
