Two children from his first wife Mary Ann Kitto (bef. 1826 - 1864) are also buried in the same cemetery. Mary was only survived by only two of her four children, her eldest Elizabeth, and Emily who was born a few months before she passed away. Mary and the two children who predeceased her, Emily & Thomas are all buried in Porthleven parish Cemetery, Portleven, Cornwall.[2] [3]

2. Thomas Jacka(1858 - 1860).[6] [7]

Thanks Ruth,

I've added the death details to Emily's profile at https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Jacka-824 I've not added her to this page as I am yet to verify where she was buried. Do you know where she was married?

Thanks for you help, Cheers Sandra
