Free Photo Restoration & Date Old Photographs / Can anyone date this photo please
« on: Tuesday 23 October 07 17:58 BST (UK)  »
Hi

This is a photograph of my 2 x great grandfather, born 1823, with his wife (b 1826) and four of their daughters.  My great grandmother, back right, was born 1852 (looking rather ill  :( ). 

They had five daughters, 1849, 1852, 1857, 1864 and 1868.  One of them had an illegitimate daughter born 1876 - could this be her at the knee of her mother? or is she the youngest daughter?

Love the parrot grt.grt. grandmother is holding!

Regards

Armed Forces / Coldstream Guard / Life Guard - COMPLETED thank you
« on: Tuesday 03 July 07 16:55 BST (UK)  »
Hi

Excuse my ignorance, but what is the difference between a Coldstream Guard and a Life Guard?

In an obituary for my 2 x grt. uncle he is described as "formerly in the Coldstream Guards" but in Henry Morton Stanley's autobiography he is described as "ex lifeguardsman"

Will his military record be at Kew? His name, Charles Edward Ingham.  He died in December 1893 in the Congo and believe he first went there as a missionary c 1881. 

see my previous thread re Uniform identification http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,239968.0.html

Armed Forces / Uniform identification please - COMPLETED Thank you
« on: Thursday 21 June 07 17:36 BST (UK)  »
Hi

Can anyone identify this uniform?  Charles Ingham was born 1855 and family believe he served in the Boer War, are there any lists of soldiers who served?  He later became a missionary in Africa.

The photo is not good, its a copy of a copy received by e-mail!

Regards

Susan   (oops sorry it's so big!)

The Common Room / Uniform identification please/family legend COMPLETED
« on: Saturday 16 June 07 23:54 BST (UK)  »
Hi

Is anyone able to identify the uniform that Charles Edward Ingham is wearing? He was born 1855 Wellingore, Lincolnshire.

According to family legend he was in Africa with Henry Morton Stanley, became a missionary and tragically was trampled to death by an elephant!  Any ideas how I can go about proving or disproving this legend?  I have traced him as far as the 1871 census, after this he disappears.

Regards

Susan
