Thread: Trouble finding a birth record Margaret Jane Morris

  1. #11
    That is the one with a fathers name or Samuel. I believe that Margaret also died as an infant or toddler, i think i saw a death record somewhere on my travels.

    Yes, Cornelius is with Charlotte on the 1911 Census and there is a death notice for Charlotte in the FMP newspaper collection.

    What is the cause of death for Margaret, Rebecca? I assume it is childbirth-related?

    There is a marraige for a Samuel Morris and Isabella Fletcher in Bolton, 1865, assume this is the Samuel you Rebecca referred to as the wrong one?

    Yes i believe it was puerperal fever for Margaret and Pneumonia for Bridget.

    I never did much research on Charlotte so didn't realise there was a notice in the paper. I haven't found any newpaper records for anyone in my tree yet.

    Im not sure, the Birth record i ordered gave a mother name of Alice not Isabella but Alice was also formally a Fletcher.

    but yes i currently believe this to be the wrong record .... but they way my research is going it could well be right. the only thing i have telling me it is wrong is that the fathers name on Margaret's marriage is down as Charles.

    According to ancestry the Margaret with the father or Samuel died very young so i doubt this is my relative

    I've eliminated a Margaret or Margaretta born in the Aberystwith district in 1851. Her father was Thomas and she married William Hughes Jones.
