      Thanks, Kat, but I already have that information. Ruby was my grandmother and the photo of the children came from my great aunt Daisy's shoebox. I think my first task to solve the question is to decide when the photo was taken then see if I can find a set of children that matches the sex and approximate ages of the ones in the photo. The Caesar's had a lot of cousins in Surrey and I wondered if some had come to visit. I'm trying to look for reasons why the photo was taken too - it was no small thing to have pictures taken in those days.

        What a sad story, but how lucky to have been able to find out so much! And it shows how putting names out there might make a link, so here's one to try!!

        I have a Sophia Caesar married to James Elkins (my 2nd cousin 5x removed) in 1847 Wrecclesham .... she died in 1849.
        Sophia doesn't appear to be in my tree..... Yet!

          I suppose because I knew the story already I never bothered to get a death certificate for Louisa. When I was writing up her story recently I thought I should order it just for completeness really. And now I’m glad that I did as, although it tells me nothing new, it is worded in a way that makes it interesting. I wonder how I would have felt if I had ordered the certificate before I knew the rest of the story.
