Re: Obray Family from Pembroke, S. Wales & Kent, England
As requested I sent you at the weekend an email with an attachment re the 'Obray Latter-Day Saint Family', but I am not sure if you received it ok.
I have tried emailing you 4 times to see if you received it ok but each one has been returned by the Postmaster as Delivery Failed.Do you have problems with your email?
Please let me know if you got the piece and how I can email you any more info.
Also I had the same thing happen with the email address you gave me for Roger Barber (although I think maybe it might be an old email address for Roger and he might be using a different one).
At the moment I an researching a discrepancy I have re my grandfather Wilfred G born 1891 and his first marriage to Mary Knight (my mothers parents.Everone has him down as the father of William, Albert, Olive, Freda, Sidney and Emily, but on the copy I have of my mother and fathers's marriage certificate it states her father was William George Obray Dockyard worker.I have today been and looked at the orignal of the parish register marriage certificate just in case someone when they did the copy of the certificate for me made a mistake.But it definitely states William and not Wilfred.I am now going to obtain a copy of my mothers birth certificate to see if that can shed any light on things.I know that after my mothers mother died that the children were brought up to various different people but I dont believe my mother would have forgotten her own fathers name and put it down wrong.I know my grandfather remarried but I dont think my mother had any contact with him and his new wife.
If you or anyone has any idea why it states William instead of Wilfred I would be grateful for their thoughts.
Anyway I do hope you get this ok.
