Adrian, Thank you for your reply, I was very, very excited to receive this information. Lister Dews was my great grandfather and he moved to the US around 1884 with his wife Sophia (Ellis). We know very little about his life and his family prior to 1884. We don't know his full name, town of birth or the names of his siblings. You seem to have access to some of this information. It would be of great help if we could communicate directly. My email address is email@example.com.
