Yes eliminated those deaths.

!891 census looks very positive! Thank you!

Hi, In 1881 Richard is living with married daughter, Mary Sharkey, and Ann with married son, William Hunt.

From the death record seems husband Richard died at the residence of wife Ann at Pendleton, Salford, County of Lancaster.

Cheshire / Ann Hunt (nee Curry) born Ireland c 1816/20 died after Sept 1885 in Salford

Looking to confirm the death (after Sept 1885) in or around Salford of Ann or Anna Hunt, nee Curry (or Correy, Corrie), born c 1816/1820 in Dublin Ireland, d/o James Curry and Winifred Doyle, wife of Richard Hunt (1804-1885). Ann's last known address, when husband Richard died on 16th Sept 1885,  was 7 Temperance Place, Pendleton, Cheshire. Her son William Hunt was living with wife Martha in Ancoats, Manchester in 1891 so that is another area possibility.  Ann was known to understate her age by as much as 10 years!

Many thanks in advance

Hi Lauren,

Many thanks for responding and explaining your connection. Iíve since established that James Welsh and Annie Semple Harrison had a daughter, Isabella Boyd Welsh, in 1911. She went on to marry a Joseph Boon Cantley and they had four children. Iíll private message you with my email address. Let me know If you would like me to send you the little I have on your Harrison/Boyd side and my Welsh side.

Thanks again for making contact.

All the best,

Interested in any Bennett family born in Broadhempston, especially offspring of James Bennett and Ann Cooke married Broadhempston 1773 and of William Bennett and Charlotte Evans, married Broadhempston 1819. My Gt Gt Grandfather was John Evans Bennett (1820-1890), a Master Mariner then Dock Pilot in London.

Hello Don

Thanks for the message.  Iím afraid your email address was removed so I need to respond to you this way.

Are you able to tell me more about Anneís father James Welsh? A possible candidate among my Welsh side is a James Welsh who was born 18th July 1897 at Yonderfield, West Kilbride. He was the son of William Welsh and Jane McKinnie. It looks like my James Welsh married a Helen Skilling in British Columbia on 27th Dec 1923. James died 16th April 1941 in Kilmarnock. A Helen Carolina ďWalshĒ died aged 78 in Kilmarnock in 1977. I cannot confirm if James Welsh and Helen Skilling had any children.

An Anne Mitchell G Welsh or Angus married a Lancelot Powell in 1963 in West Kilbride. Anne Mitchell G Powell died there in 1992, aged 64, hence born c 1928. Lancelot Powell died aged 67 in 1982 in West Kilbride, so born c 1915. Again I cannot confirm if any offspring.

I hope this information helps you Don. If you have anything more on Anne or James Welsh Iím happy to probe further.

All the best, David

A bit of fresh information on dates here. An 1862 birth record of their son Thomas shows that John Boyce and Sarah (or Sally) Anne Forsyth married in Gilford, County Down in November or December 1840, not 1844. The earlier date is far more plausible as John and Sarahís first child arrived in Girvan in 1842/1843, and the info comes from John Boyce himself as the birth informant.

Hello RosemaryJoan and BallyaltikilliganG. Thank you both for all the interesting responses.

I have messaged Jennifer on GenesReunited a couple of times, The first in 2012.  I guess she is no longer subscribed.

RosemaryJoan that's a great census find. I very much think this family will be connected to mine in some way. The 102 year old John Boyce will be born c 1799. I think my 3 x Gt Grandparents, John Boyce and Mary McCormick were born c 1781. Mary died in Girvan, Ayrshire aged 90, in 1871.

Again, thank you both so much for taking an interest.
