Joseph Thomas Kirby
What happened to his child and wife after his death in 1891? And where did his wife come from? Where was he in the 1891 Census? Where was he a policeman? If he was an army reserve man, where?
First wife – Elizabeth Taylor, liaise with the Taylor’s of Troon re Taylor family, finish off location of McNeill family, living descendants. The location of all family members complete except Lucy. What happened to her??
Second wife- That’s all mine and I have most details of the Kirby’s since.
Try and determine if the Barnstaple one is the one we are looking for. Another elusive family.
Pretty straight forward uneventful, lived in Derby 1901 and employed as a horse driver. Never married.
Died in Stourbridge with his sister Ada's family, the Flello’s
Fairly straight forward, although where did his wife's family come from, the Jacques in Evenlode? Florence Bertha Kirby married Robert Ingram and had at least a son and a daughter. What happened to them? More search required. Died in Stourbridge with his sister Ada's family, the Flello’s
Rose died in Falmouth less than one year old.
Frederick Richard Kirby
Grandfather of Alan Vincent and John Kirby, Descendants generally all understood. What is not strictly understood is why no one knows why the Kirby family split and lost touch?
Rhoda Annie Kirby – The Grafton Family
Got good idea what happened up to time of death in 1950. Know she had at least a son Arthur Harold Grafton and his wife Sylvia. Need to find out what happened to them and the rest of the family.
Francis Henry Kirby
So what happened here? Got Francis and his wife and his son, but not daughters what happened to them? And when did Francis Oliver, his son, get married? When did Francis Oliver’s wife die, where and who were the informants? This is a really important one and priority. Did Francis Oliver have children?
