Would you please take a look for John Fulton ?

He died 28 February 1821 at Cairnbrock, Kirkcolm.
Curious if there is any mention of his age / date of birth.  The John Fulton I am seeking was a shepherd and was likely around the age of 40.

Thank you,

Hello and Thank you for the reply.  The person that I am looking for may very well have passed away.  He was born c1920.  I have checked my ancestry site and family search as well as any newspaper that I can access.  I do have him in a directory and a newspaper article confirming he lived on Lancaster street in 1961.  Confirming death has not be certain.  The was another gentleman living in Albany during same time as well with the same name and near same age.   Thus hoping for a directory....

Would anyone know if any Albany City Directories or Albany Post Office Directories - post 1961 are available online ?

Thank you,


Hi Anita,

I am in Canada so it would be a plane ride and then a drive to get to Emmanuel St James Church ;D
So for now I'll perhaps try a postal letter to the church to see if that might draw a little attention.
Thanks very much for your help Anita !


Hello Anita,

Thank you kindly for your detailed response and your information regarding Emmanuel! Ellen has proven to be a bit of an elusive figure (she died in Derbyshire only a year after their marriage very little luck finding any burial record, either!) but Wilhelm himself has been a bit easier.  He was originally buried in the internment camp cemetery in Vernon, and because he was technically considered a prisoner of war and thus a charge of the Canadian forces, his circumstance of casualty has been indexed by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.  By that time he had remarried, and his second (as far as I know...) wife is listed as his next-of-kin.  In 1971, all the German graves were relocated to Kitchener, Ontario by the German War Graves Commission.  Thank you for the offer, though: I appreciate it very much!

Best regards,

Hello again Derek!

Thank you so much for looking for Ellen for me! I do appreciate it quite a bit. I am currently in the process of trying to find someone to help me locate Ellen and Wilhelm's marriage certificate in Manchester. I do know the church at which they were married and the date, but have had no luck with the parish record for 1898 being online so far. Nevertheless, given how quickly after their marriage Ellen died, I am very curious as to what happened!

I have looked through the censuses that you have mentioned and I do agree that the Ellen who appears as a servant in Devon seems most likely. I must confess that much of my interest in her situation is in fact due to her husband Wilhelm. To provide a brief background: presently I am an archaeology student in Canada, and am working on research into the personal histories of German civilians who were placed in Internment Camps under the War Measures Act during WWI. Wilhelm was unfortunately interned due to his German origins in May 1915, and died in May 1918 in a camp in British Columbia. I have located him in the 1911 census in Sheffield, living with his second (as far as I know...) wife, Stella Lizzie Cooper, and her daughter, Adela. They were married only a few days after the 1901 census in Stockport.

Again, thank you for your time and I appreciate the information. If you do happen to come across anything else about Ellen in the future that you can pass along, I would be very grateful!

Best regards,

Hello Derek,
I am just wondering if I could trouble you any information whatsoever about Ellen Wolter (m. William Henry E Wolter), born around 1864 and died in the last quarter of 1899 in Buxton.  Ellen's maiden name was Cantrell.  Anything at all would be a great help! 

Thank you kindly in advance, and I look forward to your response!

I'm trying to find details on a marriage that took place at Emmanuel and St James Church, Didsbury that took place Q1 1898.  Bride is Ellen Cantrell and Groom is William Wolter.

If you are able to find this marriage I would very much appreciate hearing any details that you might have.  William Wolter was actually Wilhelm Heindrich Eduard Wolter.  Sadly he died in 1918 in a Alien Internment Camp located at Vernon, British Columbia Canada.  On the registration he may be registered as a hairdresser.

Thanks very much,
