Help Needed Please Elzabeth Ann Cooke
« on: Wednesday 30 January 19 12:30 GMT (UK) »
Hi everyone

I am stuck with this person in my tree Elizabeth Ann Cooke, She married my Gt Grandad John Thomas Watkins 30 June 1894 St Michael's Hulme Manchester I have the marriage and I have a birth I believe to be hers abt 1873 but it says Stonehouse  Lancashire yet her sister says Stonehouse Devon, I have searched both and come up with nothing I am trying to find out when she died as she was between the ages of 22 and 25 years old they also had one child born William Anthony Watkins 1896 in Manchester it's extremely frustrating as I ordered a death certificate for her and it turns out its the wrong person  :( any help I would be most grateful.

No, I just added to my other post as I wondered if Mary E Watkins was perhaps the Mary E Watkins who witnessed the marriage and perhaps she should not have been listed as wife.  She could have been there looking after  young William if his mother had died

It is the correct family, that is my great grandad and grandma the son is to his first wife and I am trying to find out when his first wife died as the dates I have dont match, I can't find anything I can find similar and the death certificate I ordered with the info I had has a different husband so it can't be right, it's so frustrating.
