Looking for Marriage or Death record for Emily Kelk (b.1828 Halifax, NS)
« on: Friday 14 September 18 07:59 BST (UK) »
I'm trying to trace a William Moore, but need information on his wife to really be able to get any further I believe! 

His wife was

Emily Kelk (b. 1828 Halifax, NS) daughter of Edward and Mary.
I have her listed on the 1851 Census with her parents, and then again on the 1871 Census with William and her children (William, Frederick, Emily, Mary, & Ellen). 

I'd love to find record of their marriage (to hopefully find William's parents names!) or record of her death.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Unfortunately I only have William on the '71 Census, and it only says abt. 1830 and Ireland...so that doesn't help much since it's such a common name..

William and Emily's first child was born in Hamilton, Ontario Canada in 1858, so I think we're looking at a marriage date between '51 and '58
