    Can you find this family?

    I have a relative Rose Elizabeth Colthup b 11.1.1869 in Thanet to Frederick Colthup and Annie (nee) Turner. Frederick remarried Margaret Kerr in 1874. Rose never married and became a schoolteacher. I have Rose in every census and her baptism and am happy that I have her life timeline OK. I mention her for elimination because there appears to be another woman of the same name and age who appears in a baptism:
