Harry Holmes look up please travelling to North America
« on: Thursday 19 August 10 21:20 BST (UK) »
Hi All

I am doing Family History/research with my dad and I am currently looking into my great grandmothers dads history. He seems to disappear, he remarried Susan Healey in the September quarter 1908. My great grandmother did not get on with her step-mother. By 1911 Henry Holmes is not on the cenus although Susan and my great grandmother Ester Holmes were shown living in Maidenhead.

We can find no death records although we  think he may have travelled to North America in 1909 and 1910


Can anyone find any information to confirm this

I have provided some basic information about Harry Holmes

1881 Census has him aged 7 born Itchenswell (Ecchinswell) Hampshire

Birth 1874 in Itchenswell, Hampshire, England

Parents:
James Holmes  1840-Unknown
Esther Dines    1844-Unknown

Married: Louisa Matilda White in 1900 December (Aged 26)

Also Married Susan Healey in 1908 (Aged 34)


Thanks for any help
