Hi David, I am also trying to find out information on Emma Cadman & John Reid, I am a decendant of Helen Emily Reid married John Baines.
I have a bit of info on John Reid,and am happy to share what I have. But Emma is proving hard to validate her correct name, birth and death.
I can't find evidence that Cadman is her correct name, no birth, marriage or Death cert, at this stage, the only thing I have her name on is her daughter Margaret's marriage cert, on her last two marriages it states mother Emma Cadman. Have you found her marriage cert to John? or her correct death certificate? assuming it was before 1866 when John remarried Jean Paton.
Love to heard how you got on or any help from other parties.
Catherine. (Yass, NSW)
