Edward John Gerrish
« on: Saturday 08 August 20 10:44 BST (UK) »
Looking for any information on this family;

Elizabeth Ford 1846-1906, Bristol Gloucestershire. Parents Thomas and Mary Ford.

On the 25th Sept 1875 Elizabeth married Edward John Gerrish.  No more information until 1906 where I found this burial entry on the U S find a grave site
https://search.ancestry.co.uk/cgi-bin/sse.dll?dbid=60525&h=53842549&indiv=try&o_vc=Record:OtherRecord&rhSource=61686

Looks like they both moved to America shortly after their marriage. As to Edward apart from the headstone I can find nothing, he could be American.

Any help would be appreciated.

The daughter Annie who was mentioned on the U S find a grave site was born in 1885 in Illinois so the family must have moved to the States before then, just read this information.

I did look on familysearch and all I found was Kerrish, on ancestry alot of John Gerrish no Edward John that fitted the bell.  So Edward would of been 23 when he married. Just a thought Elizabeth would of been 6 years older then Edward so he kind of lied about his DOB.
