Death Record - Edwin Dunn
« on: Saturday 10 September 16 03:32 BST (UK) »
I'm looking for information, mainly death record, for my great great grandad, Edwin Dunn. He was born about 1850 in Staffordshire.

Married to Betsy Brooks in 1872. In the 1881 census he is listed as a Bucket Maker and liVing in Lye, Worcestershire. I cannot find him in the 1891 census.

My great grandad was George Dunn. Born 1884 in Wollescote, Worcestershire. In the 1891 census he is living as a visitor, not with his parents. His mother is listed as married but living with her mother and Edwin is not listed.

It was rumored that George was adopted but within the family. I haven't been able to figure that out yet until I order his birth certificate. George and his daughters had Alzheimers disease later on in their lives. I wonder if Edwin had the same and lived in a hospital and that is why Betsy is listed as a Widow.  I've read that sometimes people would list themselves as Widows or Widowers if they had been separated from their spouses.

I've looked at that record but I believe that Edwin was married to a Rosa Dunn. I don't know 100% though. Also, I wonder if my Edwin Dunn died in Warwickshire since that's where he had been living.
