* ... a message on 15-1-2011 from Martin K... asking if it could be verified if Alfred James Marshall was really born in Taita. As most of his siblings were born in Johnsonville it does seem a little strange. Can you please help ??

Do you know of Alfred James Marshall and his wife Agnes O'Brien and their children (I have one)
