Ancestry Census records

WRIGHT       James        b. Jan 1895       Pennsylvania

for all eight named.....both parents born England
immigration year 1887....Joseph naturalised
years married....33
children born....15.. ..............children living.....6

There are 6 children named here. You have Elizabeth marrying?
If daughter Elizabeth is alive at the time of this census, you might wonder if Joseph and Martha have interpreted the question to be children living......with them?
So not necessarily 9 children deceased at 1900?

Mary Delia TOWNLEY d. 1928, husband George died one week later.

What was cause of death for Mary and George?

Who raised the children of Mary and George?.

There does not seem to be a lot of HOWATSONs around in Tasmania.

If you need assistance with your research you could give the information that you already have, and identify what information you are now wanting.
