Do you have an idea of what year you great grandfather was born, married or died?

Same question for James Harvey and his wife Elizabeth. Specific years or approximate year of each event can be useful in tracing them. Also, city, and county can improve the likelihood of finding out family history.

John is my greatgrandfather
There was a James Harvey born 17 Sep 1820 at Dudley, Worcester, England. His father was Thomas Harvey and his mother was Hannah.

Did Elizabeth Harvey have a nickname like Betsey? Do you have her maiden name?

Joseph Harvey, son of James and Elizabeth Harvey, was christened 31 Mar 1850 at Smethwick, Stafford, England.

Charles Harvey was christened 18 May 1856 North Harborne, Stafford, England. Parents are James Harvey and Betsey Harvey.
thanks for the reply Frank the only other info i have is that Thomas and Richard and Charles were puddlers
