Lost mary in 1891. Please help me.
« on: Friday 21 October 11 13:53 BST (UK) »
Mary was born in Ireland abt 1816 and died 1896 age 79.

She should be on the 1891 somewhere, but I cannot find her under her surname SOORN.

Can anyone spot her?

Could be with one of her children under a different spelling?

I've found some, but am till looking for these

    Victoria born 1838 Chester, Married to TAYLOR, but widowed by 1881.

    Elizabeth born 1850 Chester, died 1895 age 44.  not married.  Also mispelt?

    Sarah Jane born 1855 Chester, married Joseph LAWLESS.

Hi

You might have already found these burials but here's the link for Overleigh cemetery in Chester -

http://archivedatabases.cheshire.gov.uk/cms/LacOverleighCemetery/home.aspx

Grave  R8339

Alfred Soorn  1863 age 19
Mary Soorn  1896 age 79
Victoria Taylor  1905 age 67
Alfred Taylor  1909 age 33

You can search by name - once you have a grave number you can then search by that number to see who is buried in the grave. By clicking on the name you should be able to see details - address etc.

Apologies if you already have this information

Regards

Neptune

That's great!

Thank you so much Mo for finding them...I wish Chester would stay in Cheshire!

I was a bit confused by 'Passed Labour' thinking childbirth days? or political party? until I realised it must mean she was regarded as too old to work.

And thank you very much too Neptune.
I didn't know of the link for the cemetery and shows the family there.

Sad both Alfreds died so young.

Hi Fenna,

I'm interested to see you are researching the name of soorn in the Chester area, I am trying to trace a John and Mary Soorn in Chester also, Though this relates to Philip Soorn, their son who married Annette Tyrphera Roberts, They have a connection with the Isle of Man.
