Bridget a roper
« on: Thursday 16 April 20 00:35 BST (UK) »
Hi

I am trying to find information of my great great grandmother Bridget A Roper born in 1865 in Ireland. She married my Great great grandfather Abraham Lincoln Denning in 1888 and they had 3 children Harry, Grace and Walter. She died in 1923.  I don't have much information other than the names of her parents I had were wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated

In the 1900 census they say they have been married for 12 years, so c1888

Modified to add:
The 1920 census Bridget says she immigrated in 1884, so married in the US. As son Harry was born South Dakota, I assume that 's where they were married?

Children's births and marriages all show mother's surname as ROPER (as OP said  :) ), though with varying given names - Bridget, Agnes, Beasey and Bessie.

Some others:

Male DENNING died 24 May 1902 https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FHHC-GQ2

(suspect this last may be incorrect, as the birth registration says female child, stillborn)
