A Missing Child

When Richard Jesse senior filled out the 1911 Census form, he declared that his wife had borne thirteen children, of whom just one had died. I have added three to those already represented on the Shared Tree, including the accidentally killed George, but the thirteenth is proving elusive.

Photographs of the two stones remembering George, his sister Mary Darnton and their parents can be found here.

Mary was the only girl who didn’t marry. Four brothers and four sisters provided her parents with at least 38 grandchildren. Most appear to be strangers to the Shared Tree so there is much work to be done. I finished putting the twelve children of firstborn John Charles and his wife Eliza on the Tree this afternoon.
