  • Lena Alexandra Mollard/ Jackson.

    Hello, Lena (Selina) Mollard was born in Burnley in 1902, I have traced her and her family to the U.S. and found Lena in the various U.S. Censuses. She married Harold J. Jackson and they were living in Boston, Mass. in the 1950 census.
    Would someone with an Ancestry sub please help me with the following:
    When were they married?
    When did they die, Lena A Jackson is listed in the U.S. Newspaper Index for Obits. Also in the Massachusetts U.S. Death Index 1970-2003 and 1901-1980. I could not find them in the Findagrave site.
    Many thanks.

        Not found a marriage but going by WW2 Draft Registration Card he was still single in 1942.
        He is James Harold Jackson not Harold James.

        1947 Massachusetts, Boston, Street Directory has Lena still single as she is listed under her maiden name.

        Lena’s naturalization card has her date of birth as 13 September 1902.

            Not sure where you got the reference to Lena being known as Selina. This is the index to her birth certificate on ukbmd.org followed by the GRO index entry.

              I was a bit puzzled by not finding the parents’ marriage in England but it turns out they married in USA and then travelled back to over to Burnley, England where Jane was from. Alexander was born in Camborne, Cornwall, England.
              Note Alexander’s surname mistranscribed as MOLLAND. Jane’s full name was Jane Annie KYTE.

                I have partly cracked the marriage. FMP have a transcript of an index entry. I can’t see the original as it refuses to open saying image failed. There is a date and the record header says Massachusetts but there’s no county given.

                First name(s) Lena A
                Last name Mollard
                Marriage year 1949
                Event date 15 Oct 1949
                Marriage county -
                Spouse's first name(s) James H
                Spouse's last name Jackson

                  I can’t find either of them on findagrave or billiongraves. Perhaps someone with newspaper access can spot something in their obituaries?

                    I have clipped the two obituaries for you. Please could you let me know when you have saved them for yourself so I can then delete them from my clippings account.
                    They don’t give much further information, unfortunately.

                      As Lena’s obituary mentions she was a member of a Baptist church you could try this help section from familysearch on Massachusetts cemeteries.

                        Got mixed up and sent both of you a P.M. instead of posting my thanks on the Forum! Thanks again.
