Hi Sandra & Jorose!
                        I have found some time after the American Civil War (1861-1865) we find him in
South Africa, he had married twice in Natal,S.A. Francis (Samuel) Joshua died on the 2nd Dec 1888,
at Kimberley S.A.
                       His first wife was: Elsie Peters  M: 1871     (no children)
                       His 2nd wife was: Mary Ann Pramblepla M: 1872    two children)
                     Are there any births/baptisms on line for Natal? for the 1880's Please? ad are there
any death notices for Kimberley in South Africa Please!

                      Thank You! ???

    I'm trying to find out were CHARLES BRIGHTON was going to! I have the record no: 2 below! he was at New York Harbour in Aug/Sept 1942, I think (?) he left New York about some time after the 7th Sept 1942 to the UK?? but were?
   I'm trying to find out about No: 1, were was he going? did he catch another ship from "GIBRALTAR", in around Aug 1942 before being in New York he was in or near the Panama Canal in South America! what was he doing down there?  On No:2 while in New York! The Ships Passenger list (2) has Charles Brighton name on it! BUT if you look very closely in very faint writing, you can see some thing about picking him up and a few other crew members from some
hospital near the Panama Canal? I wonder why they were ALL in Hospital?? Tying to find his ship home from New York in Sept/Oct 1942 Please? He was some well travelled man!!
