I'm still trying to find out how many children John and Elizabeth UPTON had.This couple married in Liverpool, England, in 1842.
I have found on-line that their son, John UPTON, b1845? Liverpool, seems to have married Elizabeth JONES.The couple is found in the 1881 census living with Elizabeth's parents, Edward and Elizabeth JONES, and others, possibly sisters.
The 1891 census has the couple with 4 children, and having John's mother and her 2nd husband with them (Evan and Elizabeth CORKILL).
I'm having trouble finding John UPTON, Sr., in the census records.That might be him in the 1861 census with the probable birth-year of 1817,but I don't have access to the actual page, so I can't see who was in the Household.And the same for the 1841 census.I changed the search-termsatwww.familysearch.organd see probably parents for John, b1817, as George and Anne UPTON of Liverpool.
