Was that from the Census? I think I saw that and deduced it was Righteous (enumerator error?) you get a lot of that kind of thing with unfamiliar names.

Ok, Viches is Righteous in the 1881 census which answers some other question I ve pondering for some time. I have not been able to follow Righteous through the census after 1871. have you any ideas on how or where to track him in the 1891 & 1901 census.
     The family tree you posted was very useful, thanks again. Does your line include Moses? If so I have Photos of Moses & Siliva & a Memory card when he was buried.

Hello,
I am researching the family of Joshua GRAY/MOBBS born c.1832 who married Harriett SMITH born c.1841. This family spent some time living in my house, so I am interested in tracing descendants of them and their children.
Does anyone have any information they could share.
An65 - Your post of 4 Sept 08 was very useful.

Many thanks

Mbarnard
