If you like Joe, scan the portion of the marriage cert with John's profession and we'll see if we can decipher it!

Spidermonkey,

If this is any help.

John moved to Western Canada and became a section foreman for Canada Pacific Railways.
His son-in-law (married to Lilian Andrews) also was a section foreman for Canada Pacific Railways.

Suz,

You have definitely done this before!!!

Now that you identified the profession, I can actually see it.

Great job.

Now all I have do is find out what the heck is a striker. :o

Using the LDS site I may have found Thomas, his wife and some of the children.

The problem is that they are listed as "Andrew" not "Andrews" though the address is the same as John's (b. 1882).

That being 16 Court Warf Street Birmingham.

Thomas (b. 1846)
Mary Ann: wife (b. 1854)
Mary (b. 1870) Nancy (b. 1876) Harry (b. 1877) George (b. 1880)

Is there another source I can use to verify that the name is in fact "Andrews", not "Andrew".

Joe

Sometimes names are mistranscribed -sometimes they are entered incorrectly_I will have alook at the 1881 image to see what it reads as.

For information on "strikers" here is a link

for more information put "Blacksmith's striker"into a search engine.

1881 the image is written as "Andrew"

This doesn't necessarily mean their name was Andrew not Andrews

As you research more you will come across all kinds of mistranscriptions, different spellings etc -all you can really do is satisfy yourself that it is the same person as in other records.

Maybe on your tree put a little note that 1881 census they are entered as Andrew

Suzard,

Thank you very much for you help.

I have already learned a great deal from you and I will build on them as I go along.
