This entry is from what used to be termed the Vital Records Index which was compiled by the Mormon Church and has been randomly added to over the years

Being realistic - even if you found the original entry it will tell you very little more that what you have already found.  It will not tell you why he was baptised so late or why the baptism was outside his home area.

You will only get his fathers occupation and possibly the home address

all I'm really looking for is the name of the church he was christened in... I know all about his parents etc but as he died so young and most of that side of the family are also no longer with us I have nobody to ask. its unfortunate that we know so little about him apart from birth/ death dates and the fact he ran away to join up in the war. was just hoping to be able to fill out the picture.
thanks for your help

I understand the wish to have any record that may be available, even if it doesn't tell us anything new at least we have some record of events in a person's life when we know so little about them.

Do you have a date for his death/funeral?
If you don't already have it I am happy to look for any death notices etc in the newspapers, an approximate date would help the search.

Hi Boo,

i would like to thank both you Boo and also Carole w for taking the time  to offer your help, its much appreciated
