Hi,I'm sorry I cannot help you with making a connection although I'm sure there is one. I was wondering, however, if you knew anything about my Palk family tree. My grandfather was a John Livingstone Palk and his father was a John Palk who was born in Newton Abbot and supposedly married a Ruby May Livinstone, although I cannot find her on any census. He died in approximately 1959 and we guess he was born in around 1880.
I would be very grateful if you had happened to make a connection in any of your research.
