Renfrewshire / Joseph Gibb - Marriage ?
« on: Sunday 21 April 13 23:22 BST (UK)  »
Is anyone able to check a marriage in Scotland, please?  I have a Joseph Gibb aged 4 born Greenock on 1861 census living Greenock, West Renfrewshire (can't find him on 1871 census).  On 1881 census he is aged 24 married to Christina living Skelmersdale, Lancashire.  Christina is down as born Scotland and is aged 24.

Two of their children have middle name Sommerville which just might be Christina's surname!  Looks like they married late 1870s.   Is anyone able to help please with this limited information.

With grateful thanks.

I don't know if anyone can help but I would like to know about a Kate Humphrey.  According to the 1891 census, she was born in Toronto, Canada in 1883.  Her older brother, William, was born 1881 in York and her next young sister was also born York in 1885 so a small window in which the family travelled to Canada and back.  Kate's mother's name was Margaret Humphrey (nee Chadwick) born 1860 London and her father was Tom Humphrey born 1861 York.

A basic search of A******y comes up with a couple of Kate Humphreys but as I don't have a subscription with them, should be grateful if someone could check to see if either of them is the one I am looking for.

With many thanks.

I am looking for Edward Lenegan on 1871 census.  I have just received a copy of his birth certificate - Edward Lenagan 18.9.1867 Father James Mother Elizabeth (nee Kelly).  I have done a basic search on A******y, in the end using just Edward's christian name, birth year, place of birth and christian names of parents.  The only family that comes up is under the name Thompson (mother Eliza).  I would have ignored this but for the fact that I found Edward on the 1911 census under the surname Thompson!  Curious!!

Could someone please let me have the 1871 details of this Thompson family please.  The only other details from the birth certificate are that the family lived 26 Albert Street, York.  St George.  and father James was a Glassblower.

With grateful thanks.

US Lookup Requests / 1910 US Census - Joseph Saxton
« on: Tuesday 21 August 12 19:53 BST (UK)  »
Could someone please let me have full details of Joseph Saxton born 1882 Pennsylvania on 1910 census.  I have some 1910 details from familysearch but..  there is Joseph Saxton age 27, wife Helena H Saxton 24, but it also has son August Saxton age 27 (followed by Bella Saxton age 26) and another son Frank O Saxton age 22 (followed by Katherine Saxton age 24 and Gertrude A Saxton age 1 m).  It is impossible for August and Frank to be sons of Joseph.  I am wondering if there are any further details on the image which would clarify this.  Family living Abington, Montgomery, Pennsylvania.  All down as born Pennsylvania.

I would be much obliged for some help on this.

With many thanks.

Could someone please let me have the extra details on the original image compared to information given on familysearch.  (I do not have access to Ancestry.) 

I have a Harrison Appleby aged 33 born England, his wife Alice aged 30 born England, son John Appleby age 9 born England and a daughter Elma Appleby age 5 born Pennsylvania.  Address = Camden Ward 8, Camden, New Jersey.  I am presuming the original image will give Harrison's occupation (joiner on 1901 in England), a precise address and when they emigrated to the USA.  At the moment I have not been able to find them on passenger lists between 1901 and 1910.

The family is still living in Camden, New Jersey on 1920 but in the household of James Warfel.  Harrison is a widower.  I've tried to find Alice's death but no success as yet.  If you could point me in the right direction in this regard that would be very much appreciated.

With grateful thanks.

Details of George Dockerill on 1851 census would be much appreciated.  He was born 1828 Bartlow, Cambridgeshire.  As he married in York in 1852 it would seem he could be in York on 1851 census as he is not with his family in Bartlow.

If someone could find him on 1851 census and let me have details, I would be very grateful.

With many thanks.

I have a George Dockerill born circa 1828 Bartlow, Cambridgeshire (parents William and Susan).  He married in York in 1852.  From Cambridgeshirefhs site, he would appear to be in Bartlow with his father William and siblings on 1841 but family not in Bartlow on 1851 (that I can see).  Could someone please confirm William's marriage status and occupation on 1841 and also find the family on 1851.

With grateful thanks.

Could someone please let me have details of Thomas Byworth and family on 1861 census.  He was born December 1821 West Tofts, Norfolk.  I can't find him on 1881 census but from a basic search on 'GenesR' using date of birth and surname, there is a Thomas born Tofts located in Stockton, Yarm.  Details of the family would be most appreciated.

With grateful thanks.

I have been on the GenesR site trying to find the Lenegan family on 1901 census but to no avail.  I have tried various spellings of the surname but nothing comes up that is relevant.

Is anyone able to do some kind of search using just Christian names?  On 1891 census family consisted of Edward Lenegan Head aged 24 Glass Blower born York.  Wife Eliza aged 24 born Manchester.  Children Elizabeth aged 4, Margaret aged 3 and James aged 1 all born York.  Living in the Fulford district of York.  Edward and Eliza died in York in 1953 and 1954 respectively so I am presuming they would still be in York in 1901.

If anyone can find this family it would be most appreciated.

Many thanks.
