Donald / Andrew, I have just noticed your posting on the Marriott Genealogy forum and your interest in a John Marriott who settled in Wisconsin from the UK. I am looking for a John William Marriott b 1857 in Staffordshire, Eng and who disappeared from the UK sometime between 1871 and 1881. I have a number of photographs in the family Photo album taken by a photographer in Wisconcin. I appreciate that it is a significant assumption but my last efforts turned up a John Marriott, but he had been born in the US. Have you had any joy in tracking down your John Marriott and if so could it be related to my interest?
