Fernley family from Stockport to Illinois, Michigan and Ontario Canada
I'm researching the James Fernley branch of the Fernley family. I have been most fortunate to reach Fernley relatives that live in Canada and Michigan and California and found that we all have the same thing in common, we cannot find where our great-great grandfather, Robert Fernley and his wife, Hannah Hallam Fernley died.
Robert is listed in the UK census schedules up until he and his wife Hannah moved to IL in 1863. He is listed in the US census schedules for 18700-1880 and the 1891 and 1901 Canadian census schedules. In 1910 there is a listing for him in Polk City Directory for Detroit stating that he died in 1910. Checking records in Detroit I find no listings, nor is he buried in the same cemetery other family members are buried in whether in Canada or the US. We cannot find Hannah (Hallam) Fernley after the 1880 US census, nor can we find a death listing for her in IL.
