Hi laurel Just posted some more data and answers to "Mary" questions, in reply to your last email. Hope you get it all. Am hoping all the others- Debra,Dorothy and Sue will be able to access it too. Is this how it works. I'm new to Genealogy.com and learning the ropes.If there is a more effective way to transfer the info let me know.
Regarding the Babbingtons. They were London friends of the Dougan family. G M Babbington and J N Babbington were on the Great Britain. G M Babbington was a witness to the mariage of Mary Ann Sarah Walkden and William Ravenscroft Stephen,Feb 1853. Richard Walkden also signed but off to the right on his own. I wonder if he was being "difficult" on the day?Mary gives their address as Prahran. I have a this certif too. Their kids carry lots of friends' names. Till next time.
