I am searching for information on James Matthew Blunt born Indiana @ 1880. Without Indiana birth records or 1890 census this is proving very difficult. The only information I have is from his marriage certificate. This states James Matthew Blunt was born @1880 in Indiana USA, father John Thomas Blunt born Wales and mother was May/Mary Cunningham (no origin). James states he has been in Australia for about 20 years.I have been unable to link a John Thomas Blunt with a May/Mary Cunningham anywhere. I have searched USA census for their names individually for 1880 as they may not have been married. James Matthew Blunt married Madolin Webber/Collins in 1917 in Newtown, NSW Sydney. They had one child, a son Leslie James Matthew Blunt in 6 April 1918 in Sydney and then both parents died in June 1919 of the Spanish Flu. I have been helping my mother on her desperate search but have not been able to find any immigration or shipping information for either John or James. We were hoping to find more information on this prior to my grandfather Les' passing but unfortunately he died 2 weeks ago. We would like to have some answers as we wish to include his biological parents names on his headstone as they were buried in unmarked graves. We have the birth date for Les' mother but would like this for James as well.??? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
