US Lookup Requests / Charles MARION b. 9 Mar 1842 Baltimore
« on: Saturday 07 July 12 08:39 BST (UK)  »
Searching for any US family connected with Charles Marion b 9 Mar 1842 Baltimore Maryland USA. Charles came to Australia just prior to the Civil War but his family stayed behind. His parents were Charles Marion and Mary Nichol/ls.Siblings I think are William, Francis, Eve and Virginia Rosalien. Family history has it that the elder Charles had a felt factory that went bankrupt. His wife
Mary was of Scottish decent.  Charles is of French/Canadian decent.
I have hit many brick walls in the past - just hoping someone has more access to information than they may have had previously. I have no marriage date/place for the elder Charles and Mary.

Hi there Pauline

It has been ages since I have gone onto Rootschat and I had changed my email so haven't been getting notifications of messages. I have come a long way in my research since the previous posting. I would like to get in touch to do some more cross checking though :-)

Cornwall / Re: GRO Number missing in St Hilary
« on: Thursday 16 July 09 00:30 BST (UK)  »
MMm well that's interesting. Thanks Galium for looking for me.
Harriet does have a sister Elizabeth Jane born on the 8th Feb 1841.
Parents are Michael and Mary (nee Hill).
I am beginning to think this may be some secret in the family.
As the whole of Michael and Mary's family came out to Australia in Aug 1848 but
left Harriet behind with her Aunty Harriet Hill and then young Harriet came over
later. Maybe her Aunty was her mother..... ? They are on the census
together in 1851 in St Martin in Cornwall.
Or maybe she was just sick and couldn't emigrate.....
I always find things that cause more questions !
thanks again

Cornwall / GRO Number missing in St Hilary
« on: Wednesday 15 July 09 07:48 BST (UK)  »
Hi there all,

I know for a fact my GGGrandmother Harriet Hill Sedgman was born on 4 Jan 1843 in St Hilary Cornwall. But I can't seem to find her GRO number anywhere. Found younger brother and older brother okay. Just hers doesn't appear anywhere. I want to order her birth cert but can't without the cert. Any ideas ?  ???


Thankyou Nell and David fo the further clarification. It is definately confusing but I think I know what to look for from here on in.

Cheers and thanks again
Vonnie  ;D

Thankyou David, Meles and Viv,

this has given me a starting point.  I will look at Westminster and see what i come up with. I figured St Margaret was part of a parish but my net skills aren't as good as they should be !

Cheers for now......


Hi there all researchers,

I have struck a bit of a dead end. Mainly because I can't get my head around where my ancestor was born.  Thomas DAY b. 1810 St Margaret, Middlesex. Couldn't find him on the 1841 census but on later census results it says born City of London......

So - I can't go looking in parish registers until I find out where to look !

Probably doesn't help that I am researching from Australia... all that standing on one's head  :D

All help you could give would be great.
