I have been searching for John Underwoods ancestors and have come up blank.  In Ancestry there is a Jesse Underwood listed as father however he was born and died in the US.

If anyone has any ideas please let me know.

Thanks

Based upon the information reflected on John's WikiTree profile (and your stating that you have an Ancestry Account)...

I believe that the following should (hopefully) be what you're looking for.

1) England, Select Births and Christenings, 1538-1975:

https://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll?indiv=1&dbid=9841&h=116588415

https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JWF2-6YR

Name:     John Underwood
Gender:     Male
Baptism Date:     6 Apr 1766
Baptism Place:     Thursby,Cumberland,England
Father:     John Underwood
FHL Film Number:     90667

2) England & Wales, Civil Registration Death Index, 1837-1915:

https://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll?indiv=1&dbid=8914&h=34596859

https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:2NLZ-S6Z

Name:     John Underwood
Registration Year:     1863
Registration Quarter:     Jul-Aug-Sep
Registration District:     Wigton
Inferred County:     Cumberland
Volume:     10b
Page:     325

The only reason I believe that the above are likely to be the individual your asking about is because they also reflect the location within "Cumberland, England".

I had also provided the record link for both Ancestry & Family Search.

I hope this was helpful for what you are looking for and I had explained this okay via text.

Good Luck! :-)

Thank you Brian!  I really appreciate your help.
It was not a problem. I don't mind doing a bit of hunting from time to time.

I just noticed that it appears that John Underwood may be a Jr as well.

Good Luck in your hunt! :-)
