My Maternal GrandMothers family has always been difficult to track down, One Ancestor was married three times, so different wives in nearly every census.
But decided to delve into another line I already had researched a bit on this line I knew George Marsden had married Jane Morris and they had a number of children, think three died young (still to input details) but decided to look into why the Whalley name occured in two of her Children's name I had a few theories, Her Mother had been married twice, She was illegitimate and that was her real Father's name, Or she had be married previously but at 27 that seemed unlikely.
BUT yes she was married and widowed by the age of 27 then I decided to look for Children of the previous marriage - just in case - I wasn't aware of any, but found a possible THREE! all dying young
I've found a John Morris on the census with a Father Ralph so one of the three looks a strong candidate.
It was a different time I know but it makes me so Sad, anyone else get emotional when tracing their family back?
