Hi Joan,Thank's for the information. Since I posted that message some time ago, I have actually checked and verified that the Forest MAUGHAN b.1834 is in fact my Gt. Grandfather. I also know about the link to Thomas MAUGHAN/Jane WEAR but I've still to check and verify that for myself as yet.
I'm off into hosp. for a week or two now so my searching will come to a standstill for a while I'm afraid.
Thank you for taking the time to send me all the information.
