That would make sense. It also appears that he went to New York in 1893 with his brother Mark.

I have an interest in this family, and according to the certificate I've downloaded, King George Eastwood married Susannah Smith at St. Paul's church in Bury on 26 Nov 1867. I'd be interested to know what you know of them. How did he come to die in Smolensk in 1905?

Worcestershire / Re: Two vanishing families from Abberley

Thank you very much Miriam! I knew I could count on somebody on here to find them.

It looks as though Alfred Bell must have been made of more adventurous stuff than the rest of my family, most of whom never ventured more than about 10 miles in any direction over the last 200 years. I shall have to see if I can trace any descendants of Olive...

Lots of intriguing questions there though... on the immigration record it lists their last place of residence as Dundee, Scotland (!) and Alfred must have gone separately because there's only Amelia, Olive and another daughter I wasn't aware of.

Worcestershire / Two vanishing families from Abberley
« on: Friday 08 August 14 15:07 BST (UK)  »
I thought I'd throw these two little mini brick walls open for suggestions. They both involve members of the Morris family of Abberley.

1. Amelia Hope was b. Abberley in 1872, the daughter of Charles Hope and Sarah (nee Morris). In 1890 Amelia married Alfred James Bell and they had a daughter Olive Silvia Bell. In the 1891 census they are in East Street, Kidderminster with Alfred's father James Bell. And after that I can't find any trace of them at all - does anybody know where they went?

2. Alfred Mills married Louisa Beard in 1865 and a year later they had a daughter, Isabella L. Mills in Worcester. In 1868 Louisa died and Alfred then married Ellen Morris in Abberley in May 1870. By the 1871 census they have a son John and the four of them are living at Shelsley Walsh. And then they vanish completely as well.

All suggestions gratefully received!

Worcestershire Lookup Requests / Re: insull insoll hartlebury

I've got lots of Insulls from Hartlebury in my tree, but not these, I'm afraid! Mine all descend from Samuel Insull (or Insol) who married Sarah Allen in Elmley Lovett in April 1821, then had (we think) 8 children in Hartlebury, from William in 1826 (though we're not absolutely certain about him because he's the only one not listed on the IGI, just 90% certain) to Maria in 1841. They did however include a John Insull b. 1835.

Worcestershire / Re: Betsy Oakey (x2): where did they go?

Yes, the age of that death looks slightly out. I've been looking for any sign of the marriage of Betsy Oakey to William Marsh and haven't come up with anything yet. Maybe since they'd gone to a different part of the country they didn't feel the need to bother.

Looks as though my previous inability to find them has been down to them not being able to stick to one form of the name Elizabeth, and Emily being (very) conservative with her age - she only ages 18 years or so in the 40 years of censuses!

Well, that certainly looks like her - the probate with the Oakey name on, and the fact that Esther Rist connects that to the Marsh family in the 1901 census, would seem to seal it.

Oooh, that looks promising! I shall investigate further. Thank you very much, all of you.
