Hello,I do not know for sure,but he looked young in the photo,and in 1870 she had grown children,it could have been a nephew.And I have no idea.They had a son named Henry,who had several children but I never saw a wife' name in any of the census.I went all the way to 1901,I see a Sarah,but it never says she is a wife.So either she was a daughter who slept around alot,or the census taker did not add it correctly.But in 1901 everyone was gone,but 2 little ones,Olive Elizabeth,and Alma Frances.They wound up in adult hood,in Bridgwater,Somerset,they married,Olive married a man named Turner,and Alma married someone named Earley.I have pictures of them also and their children...Thank you,am signing off till Monday.

Little Nell,thank you how fast.On Elizabeth'parents I have nothing.Other than her mothers last name was Brown.I have the census,up until she died in 1908.I just did not how to find her back beyond her birthdate.My ggreat grandmother was in service,she and her sister Mary Ann.Mariah was born in 1841,and Mary was born in 1850.Mariah served a LADY BINGHAM,and travelled with them,at one time they went to the Isle of Wight,where she sat in the pew of Queen Victoria.The Queen was ill that day,and the minister let them sit there.I have not been able to find anything out for the Bingham'.Or where they lived.I have a photo of one of the brothers,of Eliz.his name was WILLIAM SCOTT and he was in the military in 1870,I will send it to you if you would like.I do not know if Mariah got married over there or not.Because she was around 32 yrs old when she came to the US,just her and Mary Ann all alone.The whole family was supposed to come over,but one of the brothers got sick and they had to wait,but for some reason it never happened,I do not know if they ever saw them again.Please let me know what else you might need.

I am looking for any information on Ashby's,from Kings Lynn,Norfolk.They were from Terrington,Swaffham.Charles Ashby,James,Charles was born in 1797.He had 3 sons,Charles,George,John.John was born in 1846,he was my gggrandfather.He was in Burton upon Trent,as a lodger.Between 1871 and 1873 he met and married a Harriett.Do not know any of her,except she was very little,and when they came to the United States in 1873,she died months after they got to McKinney ,Texas of tuberculosis.She does not have a marker on her grave and cannot find it.I think there was a brother of the older Charles maybe a  Robert.I have been looking 20 years and still cannot find out a lot of them.
