Query by crisp51

Caroline was my second great aunt and I would love to know what happened to her after she moved to Canada with husband George William in 1880s.

Hi Familydetective - Thank you so much for lookups on Caroline and her family (husband had same surname of Colley!) If it's not too much trouble I'd love to know who Esther b 1889 married if that's available. Thanks again.
