Hi Lynne, great to hear from you. I guess we are related by marriage! John and Annie were married at St Edwards Roman Catholic Chapel, Runcorn 14th June 1899. ( GRO index Volume 8a Page 463.)Witnessed by James Donlan and Margaret Ellen McKeown. To date I have located 6 children:- Lawrence 1901, Kathleen 1903, Margaret 1906, Honor 1907 (my husbands grandmother),Winifred 1910, Irene 1912.
Honor married Albert Taylor - we are unfortunately not in contact with any members of the Taylor family so the trail has all been undertaken on the internet.I have discovered that Lawrence Plover b 1833 was based in Kent with the 18th Irish foot regiment in 1861 but can find no further information.
