LancashireL hi CricketC i k team? 1928 bit.ly/ 2dQKK8T This photograph includes my Dad, CD Foxlow, in what I assume is a cricket team, as he once lived in Queen’s Avenue, Old Trafford, Manchester. It’s dated circa 1928, does anyone recognise any of the players or the cap badges? pebble-or-ripple Power/Connors – County Waterford bit.ly/ 2dDFDFK James Hogan married Joanna Power at Rathgormack, County Waterford on 26 July 1857. They subsequently had seven children: Ellen (1858), Michael (1860), James (1862), Mary (1865) John (1867), Patrick (1869) and Thomas (1871).
Why then on all the entries in the Church ( RC) baptism register is the mother noted as Johanna Connors (Connor/ Conners), and also on all the birth certificates (after 1864) as Connors (Connor/ Conners) except for Mary’s birth certificate in 1865 where she is named as Joney Power. There are no Connors mentioned on any of the baptisms.
I cannot find a previous marriage between a Johanna Power and a Mr Connors which could explain the discrepancy.
DNA evidence proves I have the right family, but I’m at a loss to explain the change of Johanna’s name and I really want to solve this puzzle before going any further. Are there any experienced Irish genealogists out there who have come across something similar? Lynden John Wallace bit.ly/ 2dILkRg I am trying to track down John Wallace who was born in Cupar, Fife, Scotland, on 24 March 1866. In 1881 he was living in Leuchars village Scotland with his mother, sister and brother.
He was a paper mill worker. In 1891, he was no longer living with his mother. All three of his children were illegitimate. How can I trace him? parrettd793 Re: John Wallace Have you tried baph. org.uk/reference/ papermakersindex. html? British papermaker historians have an index they will search for you. There is also a John Wallace, who was a miner from Fifeshire, born 1865, crossing the US/ Canadian border from Quebec in January 1904 on Ancestry… ciderdrinker Gmelin Tate bit.ly/ 2dqZ9ck My ancestor Gmelin Tate is said to have been born in Guyzance, Northumberland, in most censuses (though in 1861 it says Bellingham). In 1841, he was a shoemaker living in Woodbine Street, Bishopweamouth, and on 1 July 1844 he married Mary Ann Whittle, which is in Monkwearmouth. On the marriage certificate his father is William Tate e, carpenter and weaver.
From then on I have found extensive documentation, which has led me to cousins in England and the USA. However, none of us ca n trace Gmelin’s birth and d so cannot trace our ancestry beyond our great great grandfather . Any suggestions please? ? Skyeblu Max Klein 1910-1955 bit.ly/ 2cStf23 I’m looking for anyone related to my granddad Max or his brother Ernes stt Hugo, 1908-91. Max raced motor bikes, was especially good at Isle of f Man TT. He was killed a t Brands Hatch, racing cars. I don’t know much about Ernest (or Ernst) other than what I have seen on Ancestry. luvbug43
