Devon Lookup Requests / TONKIN burials in Stoke Damerel
« on: Saturday 21 January 12 12:26 GMT (UK)  »
Hi all,
I am trying to find the burial & headstone details of Tonkin ancestors who died at Stoke Damerel.
All I have is -

John Tonkin died at Stoke Damerel on 17th Mar 1876 (born 17 nov 1795),
his wife Sukey/Susan died at Stoke Damerel in 1881
his Son William who is believed to have died in 1903 aged in his 70's along with his wife Mary.
I know that William Tonkin owned drapers and lived above the shop at 60-62 Fore Street in Stoke Damerel  he is in both the 18881 and 1891 census at this address.

Any help would be greatly appreciated - Luc.

« on: Friday 07 October 11 11:21 BST (UK)  »
Hi, I am trying to find out information about the following marriage and subsequent family
I believe that - William Henry Harvey married - Hannah Soan Sands at Southwark, London in 1869
and that heir first child  - Hannah Alice Soan Harvey was born at Southwark, London in 1869.
I do about know the parents and siblings of Hannah. BUT I do not know what happened to her after she married -if indeed this is marriage is correct and worse I  sadly know nothing more about  Hannah's Husband than his reputed name and I know nothing of  her children !
Please can anyone help me - I seem to have a brick wall.  any help would be appreciated . Thanks - Luc.

my ancestor is - george de Mauduit.
any help would be greatly appreciated - regards - Luc.

US Completed Requests / De Mauriac of Flushing, New York * Completed *
« on: Friday 08 July 11 14:51 BST (UK)  »
Can anyone help I am trying to find out if - Guy de Miremont de Mauriac of New York and Guy Montmorecy de Mauriac of New York are one and the same person. 

Guy M De Mauriac  is mentioned the diaries if a French cousin I am researching and the entries mention him living in New York in 1915/1916 and later that they went to Guy's parents at Flushing L.I. And that he visisted france  regularily. I believe my cousin's friend should have been born around 1880/1882 and that his father was a prominent member of  new york society.

I looked on the internet and found on a Guy de Miremont de Mauriac of New York and Guy Montmorecy de Mauriac of New York.  However they could be two separeate persons so  I wondered if any kind person who had access to the US passport applications could find them for me - the information on there should help me trace them further.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.  Regards Luc

US Completed Requests / US Passport applications * Completed *
« on: Thursday 12 May 11 17:33 BST (UK)  »
I need help with finding some information about other American relatives of mine –it has been suggested that the information I am looking for might be on the US Passport applications so I wonder if I anyone could help and suggest how I could find the US Passport applications for ancestors of mine -

Priscilla Griffin De Mauduit        ( nee Priscilla Alden Griffin) born 17 Jan 1894 at New York,   United States of America.

also for her daughter - Yolande her parental surname  should be “de Mauduit” or maybe  she later adopted the surname“Griffin De Mauduit”  as her mother did.       born in Paris, France in 1916 ) lived in Washington Dc from around ww1 and later married Major James L. Collins 1943 there. (Hopefully the passport will confirm her place and date of birth as I cannot find a Birth certificate in Paris.

and for  her mother - Allie Hancock Griffin    ( nee Almira Russell Hancock) born 10 Sep 1857 at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States of America

Any help and suggestions would be very much appreciated.
Kind regards – Luc.
