I have James Bradley COOKSON of Birkenhead, England died 20 February 1901 at Cachuela Esperanza Rio Beni Bolivia.
Family hearsay is he died trying to save a cabin boy. One family rumour is he was a rubber importer. Another part of the family says he was a sea captain. The 1871, 1881, 1891 UK censuses have him as a metal or lathe turner.
Any ideas on how could I find anything more?
A relative in Canada tried the Bolivian Embassy and then the British Embassy in La Paz and received polite brush-offs.
