Micaiah/Machia Sharrock, also sister Moriah
« on: Sunday 10 February 19 22:57 GMT (UK) »
I have these two in my tree with very unusual first names, I have Micaiah  few times, couple of baptisms with different spellings but same person, and also a marriage in 1831 to Alice Openshaw, its after this I lose him, with such an unusual name thought it would be easy to find record but he just disappears, as does his sister. Moriah though could quite easily become Maria etc.,. I have tried all different ways of input to try and find where he might have gone but no luck so far.

Any Ideas would be gratefully received. Although I have baptisms I am wondering about the familys background and where they might have come from in the past, that being a work in progress .

TIA

Susan

Thank you yes Thomas Finney Sharrocks was a brother, as was Betty Heywood Finney born 1800 died 1803, also Elsie born 1804.

There are two baptisms for Micaiah one in 1802 at St Peters Bolton le moors, and the other one 28th July 1811 at the non conformist church new jerusalemite, but if this is him then mothers name is Ellen not Eleanor and he wasborn 1813 not 1811, so little confusing all around.

Just a very strange one.

Thanks

Susan
