Derry (Londonderry) / Henry Lennox, born abt 1858, Aughrim, father Hugh
« on: Sunday 01 May 22 20:33 BST (UK)  »
As per Henry's marriage to Matilda Badger in 1894, his father was Hugh of Aughrim. Of course, his mother's name is not mentioned.

Henry died in 1903 and his father-in-law Robert Badger was present.

I am looking for the name of Henry's mother. Perhaps it is mentioned in a death notice or writeup.
thanks for any help.
I am told that the mother's name is mentioned in the Watkins/Boanas Family tree but I don't know how to access a specific tree.

Tyrone / John Crooks, death, Mar 16, 1912 Crossnarea, Moneymore, Ireland
« on: Thursday 28 April 22 21:49 BST (UK)  »
John died Mar 16, 1912, in Crossnarea, and his daughter Isabella Agnew was present. Is there a death notice, obit, write up about John's death?
John had married Sarah Crooks May 31, 1859. Another John Crooks had married Sarah jane Cook abt 1861 and lived in Durham, England. There is much confusion between these families.
I find the Crossnarea John living by himself in 1911, widower, age 72, farmer. I have 7 children for him although there would be more between 1859 and 1864.
I find the Durham, England John registered in Stockton on  Tees, in 1911, widower, age 69, retired Coke Washer, however it says he is living in Ireland. Census form is signed by the second wife, Frances Pease,  of John's daughter Margaret Crooks who had married Henry James Pease. Margaret had died in 1900. I don't find this John Crooks in Ireland in 1911. English Censuses throughout the years say he was from  co. Tyrone. I don't find a marriage to Sarah Cook.
I don't find a will or death for the Durham John Crooks any time between 1911-1941 in England or Ireland.
Can anyone shed any light on this?
Thank you.

Durham / Margaret Crooks, born abt 1862, Durham, probably Darlington
« on: Thursday 28 April 22 00:00 BST (UK)  »
Margaret Crooks had parents John Crooks and Sarah Jane, but I don't know the surname of her mother. She was born abt 1862 and married Harry James Pease Jan 1887 in Stockton, Durham (unverified). She may have died before the 1901 census.
Looking for her mother's name.
Thanks for any help

Catherine Lennox born Feb 20, 1897 in Camden, New Jersey, married J. Russell Fisher. She died abt Aug 8, 1985 either in Barrington, Illinois or in Philadelphia. I am told there is an obit in the Philadelphia Inquirer, Aug 9, 1985. Her parents were Henry Lennox and Mary Edgar.
Thanks for any help

United States of America / Death Robert Crooks, Jan 2, 1938, Philadelphia
« on: Sunday 24 April 22 19:27 BST (UK)  »
There was a Robert Crooks born June 19, 1867 to John Crooks and Sarah Jane Lennox in Claggan, Moneymore, Ireland. I believe he married Annie Ross in Pennsylvania in 1887, age 19.
I believe they stayed in  Pennsylvania and I have followed them until the 1930 census.
Then I found a Robert Crooks on findagrave, dod Jan 2, 1938. Says father John Crooks, and he had wife Annie. Everything fits for this to be the correct Robert Crooks. but I can't find death certificate to positively verify.
Annie is also buried in Oakland Cemetery in  Philadelphia, dod May 30, 1935. Father William.
Can anyone find their death certificates to be 100% sure this is them?
thank you

Canada / Death of James Walker, Toronto, Apr 17, 1905
« on: Tuesday 19 April 22 20:57 BST (UK)  »
James Maybury Walker, husband of Margaret Ann Lennox, died between the 1901 census, and Margaret Ann's remarriage to George Wallace Smith in 1910.
I have found the death on findagrave of a James Walker Apr 17, 1905. In his 40th year which would make his birth abt 1865. I believe James was actually born abt 1859 but this could be him. His parents should be John Walker and jane Lennox if his death certificate can be found.
Thank you for any help

Jane Lennox was nee Rainey, born 1826, Co. Down, Ireland (as per findagrave) and she married Richard Lennox before 1850 in Ontario, Canada. Daughter Mary Jane was born abt 1850 in Ontario, Canada. Richard and Jane lived in Innisfil Township, Simcoe Co., Ontario but Richard died before 1871. Their youngest son William John Lennox was born abt 1863 so that narrows down the time of death. Jane went to live with one of her two sons in Frankton, Indiana before her death Mar 22, 1900 in Frankton but she was brought back to Innisfil for burial in Churchill Cemetery as per obit, but St. Peter's Anglican Church cemetery as per findagrave. Are they one and the same?

Anyway, as per Jane's short obit, published on findagrave, Jane had 3 brothers living in Innisfil at the time of her death - James, David, and John. I feel that I have likely found David's death Apr 4, 1910 in Innisfil. His wife Margaret Ross. David was also born in Co. Down, in 1832. Can anyone find his obit or death certificate, hoping for parents names?
John and James are harder to determine but there is a James Rainey born Ireland abt 1821, didn't find death, married to Priscilla Ross. Sometimes siblings married siblings.
There are several John Raineys. One died 1906 (born 1812), one 1909 (born 1844). Can't be sure of either.
Thanks for any help

If I am correct, Rebecca Jane Davis, nee Lennox is the daughter of John Lennox and Margaret Sproule. Looking to verify that with her death certificate and/or obit. She died May 16, 1930 in Ivy, Simcoe Co., Ontario, Canada and was the widow of William Henry Davis.
