Hi Sandra,

Many thanks - in that case he died in 1865.

Hi Sandra,

Just wanted to update you and thank you for your help which has allowed me to produce a family tree for Edwin Watson following his emigration to the USA.

I still have things to find however if it not too much of an imposition, can I seek your help to look at the following on my behalf -

1) Sylvia Cecile Maud Trudell (born Canada 1888) married Lewis T Kollwitz and by 1910 had one son. The parents divorced 1912/13 and she re-married in 1915 to Frank Frederick Fifer (1878-1920). He subsequently re-married a Rosy White in 1918. I have no idea what happened to Sylvia - she may have re-married again to Frederick Kroell in 1922 but can you find her or her death?
2) Julia F Liddington born 1903, I think married an Alexander B Kaminski in 1923 - no trace of them afterwards.
3)You have kindly provided information on Nellie May Watson born 1865 who married Frank Bough I cannot find her after her husband died in 1910. Any ideas? Their son Edwin Frank Bough (born 1881, died 1924) had remarried an Emma born in Sweden in 1886 - any idea who she was or when they married?

I will keep looking myself but the records i have access to are fairly limited.

Many thanks again for all your help

Alan

Never had any luck with Nellie May Watson/Bough after she was arrested in reply 10.

The death  notice/obit for mother Sarah gives no extra information on Julie, just mentions she leaves 4 daughters

The Times Munster, Indiana 15 Jul 1925, Wed    Page 8

The obits for Nellie died 1985 and Matilda in 1974 also made no reference to sister Julie

Hi Sandra,

Their son Edwin Frank Bough (born 1881, died 1924) had remarried an Emma born in Sweden in 1886 - any idea who she was or when they married?

Interestingly there was a Nettie May Kimbrough born 1883 noted on the 1903 marriage with Edwin and then again on 1 marriage 1st April 1920 Kane, Illinois to Leroy Cannon. Nettie had same parents listed each time but was born Illinois not Sweden.  If that was Emma, she may have left Edwin and returned to Illinois  :-\ ???
