Query by Osiris

I am looking for any family menber(s) of this family. Ada was married to Francis Roy Harwood, they had two sons - Roy Birnie Harwood, and Raylow Harwood. They divorced and I thought that it appropriate to enter them in our family tree. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Guys, it appears there may be a bit of a gremlin at work here. My information shows that Ada was born in 1873 to Edwin Stringer and Ann Mawson, she married Roy Francis Harwood [Born 1903, died 1971] in 1926. The age discrepancy could be an issue but it might also explain why Roy married again. No doubt there will be some clarity in due course. Peter
