Could be.

Have you found the death of John in Bo'ness yet? Frances said he died with Richard.  I've found Richard there on the early censuses but no sign of a death for John. wonder where she got the info from?

Think you got his dates wrong, George:

Birth reg for Matthew Hill Sheehan June q, 1873, Cockermouth, 10b, 597

Nothing  on FreeBMD around the date that you gave  - what was your source?

gnu


Family search gnu,gives his christening as 3 June 1866.

They have John and Alberts spot on.Maybe he had two Matthews,wouldn't be unknown if the first died.

That's about the correct age for Richard.John and Albert's were both extracted.Haven't found John senior's death yet.Perhaps Frances can let us know the details.

You two are keen, I got Johns death details from a lady in Scotland who sent me the excerpt. I will look out the details tonight for you.

A really interesting one is Matthew Hill Sheehan he ended up in Lancashire, did not appear to marry but had 5 daughters. Went to South Africa and Australia died in the 1960's in Chorley, but spent all his life in SA. The family know very little about him except he sent the odd diamond back to the mother of children. None of the current family ever met him so it is all second hand. I have found him on passenger lists going out and one coming back from Australia but little else.

Thank you for all you  help

Frances
