Hi Markav

Thanks for the reply sadly I have very little info to go on here, just what my father remembers being told many years ago, his gg grandfather William Roberts died in a mining accident near Bodmin. His daughter Mary Jane was born 1881 and William was deceased by 1905 according to her marriage certificate. I found one record that looked promising on ancestry but wrong part of Cornwall (St.Just) and when I cross referenced it with newspapers that William Roberts was listed as single no dependants. I have not been able to find anything else that fits.

I'd love to know if 2 of my 4th great uncles died in a mine. One was a miner and one was a carpenter which was needed. Both were in NSW.

Mary Jane Roberts married Richard Henry Deacon, in Plymouth 1906, but thats is all I have on the Roberts family was hoping I would be able to find something which would allow me to trace them.

Hi Markav

Yes thats the family, I have managed to trace the Deacons quite well but the maternal line I cant seem to get further back, I think it does not help that her father was William Roberts which is quite a common name!

Hi, I have found her on the 1939 register and her birth date is given as 29th July 1881 so i believe this may be her

Births Sep 1881
Roberts Mary Jane Redruth 5c 213
