England / Sapper 1861 John Jerred - lookup request
« on: Thursday 21 January 21 06:56 GMT (UK)  »
Hi good people
John Jerred is/was my ggggrandfather.
I am led to believe that in about 1861 he was a Sapper (Royal Engineer) - he was from Devon.
I am wondering if anyone has any access to online records that would show some light on to any information pertaining to this man.
My thanks in advance.

US Lookup Requests / Richard Augustus Henderson - Lookup request please
« on: Friday 15 January 21 00:16 GMT (UK)  »
Any chance anyone can take a look at these for me please and forward some details.
Background - all I know about this gentleman is he lived in Virginia, possibly married a Frances/Emma Muir - dates unknown but they had a child John Archibald Robert Henderson in about 1859 Virginia. John emigrated to Australia in about 1873. They are a total mystery - both of them until 1880, a seamans certificate for John, and later John's death certificate stating POB Virginia USA.

1. Virginia, U.S., Marriage Records, 1936-2014 Richard Augustus Henderson (Virginia USA) - maybe a stretch but too much of a coincidence - given the immediate name connection.
2. Virginia, U.S., Deaths and Burials Index, 1853-1917 - Richard Henderson - Chesterfield, Virginia.
3. Virginia, U.S., Deaths and Burials Index, 1853-1917 - Richard Henderson 1894

I have not looked at census documents yet.
Would appreciate any help
Cheers
