Thanks a million.

I and another of his descendants are trying to find out what happened to them. We have no record of births of any other children or their deaths. It is possible they went to South Africa?

yes, there is a discepancy

i think she was born in 1887 as that would have made her 21 when she married George in 1908

Thank you. Now I am really confused as she was 21 in 1908 when she married George Biddulph Anderson so how can she have married Grimsell the year she was born?

I wonder if this Emmeline Wheatley was her mother?

That would make sense.

Thank you. He was born in Brighton. So he could have stayed in Arabia or Cyprus or Gibraltar?
