Re: Schischkar(and variations)London 1870s
Further to my previous messages, I have now found out a lot more about our SCHISCHKAR connections. Our Schischkar family migrated to Halifax, Yorkshire, England in the 1800s, and Henry S. eventually went to the USA, where he apparently married Emily rosa newcomb. According to the IGI this marriage took place in 1902 and Henry died in London, England, in 1907. This is not, in fact accurate - Henry was born in 1854(not 1866 as stated on the IGI)and he died in England in 1895. His death was registered by his wife Emily. It's possible that they were not legally married, if at all, as we can find no trace of a divorce from his firast wife Caroline Hyland (married in 1872).Can anyone throw any light on this? there was also supposedly a daughter, Gladys, born in 1903!
