Johannes in India
I am tracing my husbands family and have hit a brick wall.John JOHANNES (born c. 1861) married Amelia (Amy) WARD on 25.9.1895.The Church records are from C of E Central Privinces and they were living Chakradharpur.John's father was Nathaniel JOHANNES and Amelia's father was John WARD.John Johannes appears in Thackers directory for 1895 as a Driver at Chakardharpur in the Bengal-Nagpur Railway as J. JOHANIES.Under the Eastern Bengal (State) Railway there is an "S.B. JOHANNES" Traffic InspectorCalcutta and "N.B. JOHANNES" as a Guard Calcutta.
I believe the N.B. Johannes is Nathaniel, John's father.I have not been able to find Nathaniel's marriage on any of the usual sites (FIBIS, Cathy Days site etc) or the IGI.I have also checked the East India Register and Directory for 1830 with no luck.I have not been able to find John's Birth either.
If anyone has any ideas for further research ideas or knows of these families I would love to hear from you.
