Hello--
     Here again. Looking for what happened to Thomas Whitney, born 1847, Moreton Corbet, son of George Whitney and Mary Lawley. Did he die young or leave Shropshire??
Thanks.

1851 census: https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:SG66-F5T
With parents George and Mary, and siblings John (age 8 ) and Elizabeth (2).

1861, working on a farm: https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M7BH-SFQ

There's a burial in Moreton Corbet in 1903


A possible sighting in 1871, but says born in Kenley?
