this may be a long shot but here goes! I am trying to find information about a William Whelan born 1855 in Liverpool, married an Elizabeth roughly 1885 and had a son in 1887 called william whelan. the father appears on the 1901 census but doesnt seem to appear in any prior censuses...i know he lived in 1901 in new hedley street liverpool, which i believe doesnt exist anymore, may of been demolished due to the mersey tunnel.the son, had a sister named esther, but i also cannot find her on any records. elizabeth's maiden name is also unknown so i cannot find anything on her either! any help would be great!
