Looking for William Jones and family who lived in Coachella, California in 1919 and moved to Friday Harbor,Washington State at some time. Children were Ellen Elizabeth Jones(Nellie) and Harry (Henry). They emigrated from Froxfield,Hampshire, but the date of emigration is unknown at present.
I have postcards sent from Harry Jones to his 'cousin' Willie Edwin Knight, who was my great uncle. There is also a photograph of Ellen Elizabeth Jones.
The family lived in the Clonaslee,Mountmellick area of Co.Laois.William and Mary Chambers were the parents of my great grandfather Bernard who was born c.a.1819-24. There was also another child Dan who was born in 1825 in Rosenallis. Whilst I basically have Bernards life traced up to date there are no doubt other children of William and Mary somewhere, but parish records in Ireland are few and far between. Bernard joined the army and fought in the Mutiney,gaining a medal for that event.He married Abigail Burke(widow) nee Mahoney in 1861 in Cork City, and the couple had fourteen children..including Michael John who was my grandfather. Michael also joined the army and eventually ended his service on the Isle of Wight in 1903 where he married and had several children; his wife died in childbirth and also the youngest child,thus leaving Michael to look after the eldest child Rose. He remarried in 1914 to Helen Elizabeth Knight of Froxfield,Hampshire.
Isaac Holloway and Ann Breaker or Beaker. Their daughter Sarah was born in North Waltham. Sarah was my great,great grandmother and married David Jones.
