Armed Forces / Re: Where to find Soldier, Job Smith in 1871, 1881

Ken,  Interesting

I had done some research too and found the rank of Lieutenant = Asst Commissary

Interesting further you attached info with the similarity in the 1866 date.

Few things come to mind,
There are not that many Job Smith  -- so could be ??
Job's birth date could be 1845  (from 1851 sighting) so younger still ??
Info I am working comes from a cousin  --  which needs to be taken a grain of salt  (ahem).  It is by far more correct (IMO, based on my research)  than not..... but still some errors and possible aggrandizement   
1866-1871 being Job's Army enlistment date range, to be promoted so quickly in 1870. On a real fast track ??

Score
2 against
1 for
1 50/50

Thanks for the input
Murphy

hmmmm...   

there is Job Smith  in 1871  in Hampshire  Soldier/Corporal   Age: 30  (1841)  Ft. Grange   born: Ireland ??   

He is sandwiched in on long list of Irish with a couple of soldiers from England mixed in.  Ireland could be   an error  but really grasping at straws on this

Ken, thanks very much for the detailed information  --  I have some work to do!

Some other tidbits of info --

Possible Job joined the army in 1866 -  in one place I have 1866 (17 years as a Soldier) and in another,  12 years in with retirement in 1883 .

Dau Eliza baptism was signed by Edward Jones, Archdeacon of St. Joseph  Her birth was in Aston Clinton, Bucks

Job was made "Assistant Commissary" in February, 1870 in Aldershot -- Hampshire  ???
There seems to be  a military museum there.

Thanks,

Murphy

Job Smith (b. 1843 Aston Clinton, Bucks) marries Mary Ann Slade in 1863

In 1871,  Mary Ann living on her own with son Thomas b. 1867  in Rothchilds Inn a pub in Aston Clinton,  No husband in residence

In 1881,  Mary Ann is still on her own with children Albert age 9 and Eliza age 1 on Weston Road in Aston Clinton.  No husband in residence.

On Eliza's birth registration (b. July 15, 1879) her father, Job Smith is noted as father and a Soldier.

Would Job Smith be on a military census of some sort since he is not in the regular census ?

Family story is that Job was in the Army for 12 years and retires in 1883 therefore would have joined Army about 1871
He immigrates to Canada with the family in 1884 and on to the U.S. by 1890.
His passenger list to Canada indicated “Labourer”  not Soldier in 1884

Thanks,
Murphy

maybe, maybe not ??

1940 Scotch Plains, Union, New Jersey Street: Cooper Street
In 1935 they were in Baltiimore Maryland
Occupation: Manager    Industry I can’t identify    ( PM'd you )
Karl Lindner 47  1893  PA ??
Marie Lindner 46  1894
Lillian Shephard 29 domestic servant

This is the only match to KarL Lindner I found which matches age and wifes name (sort of)  ..  Have not checked for mis-spelling, however 
Maybe a sign of the times that his nationality and occupation changed ??

Per Find A Grave , He died in 1945 and is buried in Wyoming Cemetery --  Mary Louise is not found on Find A Grave

Judy,  As of 1930, no children shown for Karl & Mary Louise.  They are in their mid-30's

If sighting of them in 1940 is correct --  his occupation had greatly changed --  no children then either
