    Thanks for looking, Elaine. I've had no joy with either Canada or US census, but the main thing is I now know that he grew up and married. Vera's find suggests why I can't find him in UK census 1861 and after. He and his siblings are only twigs on my tree - it was just that I'd been able to follow through the lives of his 3 siblings, but had nothing for Dennis. The results of this thread have given me new information about him, which has been a great help.

    Oh, Vera, thank you for that. That would explain why I couldn't find the couple from the 1853 marriage in 1861 census. I reckon between you, you and Moggie have joined up all the dots for me. Dennis Reeves were in short supply - the one you've found was born c1828. The marriage Moggie supplied was for Dennis, son of Paul, and also there's a link with Nottinghamshire where Dennis's younger brother was by 1861. Looks very likely, don't you think? I just couldn't solve this one on my own, I'd got too fixated on just looking within the box, so thanks again to both of you. ......Jay

    Annesley Ntt - would that be Nottinghamshire? My Dennis had a brother called John, who went to Nottinghamshire...... ETA - I've just looked out my notes on John Reeve and he lived in Annesley Notts 1881 - 1901. So well done, Moggie, I reckon you've found the missing link in the chain and I'm very grateful.

    Oh thank you, Moggie - that could be my Dennis as his father was named Paul.;D I saw that marriage in the GRO index, but couldn't find the couple on 1861, so didn't try to follow it up by combing through all possible resources. :(

    Vera, I only have a basic Ancestry sub, so I can't open the link. Would you be kind enough to tell me what sort of record it is and the date please, and the gist of what it's about? (I have census references for a Dennis with a wife called Sarah - not mine - and also two marriage index entries which I haven't yet been able to trace for confirmation or elimination purposes.) Hopefully what you've found will tie in with one of these Dennis Reeve strands....... Jay

    started a topic Dennis Reeve - was he vapourised??

    Dennis Reeve - was he vapourised??

    Can anyone spot Dennis Reeve born 1829 in Horningtoft, Norfolk after 1841, when he was recorded in the parental home at Horningtoft? (Not to be confused with an older relative Dennis Reeve, born Colkirk Norfolk c1802, nor with the father & son Dennis Reeves, who lived in Shoreditch 1851 and after.) Thanks for looking .....................Jay
