|We have two lots of family research on the go at the moment.Toby is drawing a blank on the McFall family so if anyone has any information onRufus Everett McFall (born Kansas 1903) and Rufus Washington (b 1865 - died in Colorado) or their connections it would be appreciated.|
All of Jenny's research is concerned with Scotland (Robertson, Duncan and Brodie from Morayshire) and England/Ireland (Sullivan, Kelly, Searle from Surrey, Liverpool, Dublin, Kerry).The Irish are the most elusive!Arthur John Sullivan (mother's surname Kelly) was reportedly born on 5 July 1887 to a baker in Dublin.He was brought up as an orphan by aunts in Liverpool, had a sister Christina (who was a singer in Lancashire) and a brother Bruce (surnamed Wilson).I have been unable to trace any of these family members.
To another branch:Frances Searle married James Ryan in Surrey - 28 August 1879.Frances (b. 1849?) was the daughter of James Ryan who was a police constable.She spoke of her memories of Ireland but I have found no record of her birth or her father's.
Research has slowed considerably since the birth of our daughter, but hopefully we will pick up the traces again soon!
