Kris,

Thank you for puting time and effort in to this.

They had no children, so no family names passed on...... :( 

Just located a Ada Emily Dawson born in Birmingham in 1884!  Dates work in.   

But why Swindon?

I'm heading to States soon, so maybe I'll knock on some doors and go in search of certificates.....

thanks anyway :)

Hi Alba,

I found a Pennsylvania naturalization petition but alas it is to early to help as he was not married when he made application.  :'( Document dated 23 Oct 1918.) His residence was 33 N 61 St Philadelphia pa so I assume the marriage was probably in Philadelphia

I hope you are able to uncover something further in the US

Cheers Kris  :)

OOH youngtug - Excellent! That is close to the time we are looking for.  ;D

Good One KansKar!  ;D

I did note her yesterday but had no joy with an Atlantic  crossing crossing for her. I did like that there was the correct middle name (although a little older than records for John Black's wife suggest)

She is a servant in Swindon in 1901. 1891 dau of Alfred and Emily 28 Byron St Swindon
