We often wondered what happened to my husbands g.grandfather as we
death for him. We have now found a newspaper report of the funeral of
wife who died at 100 in 1928, and as usual full of detail, but most
interesting was that her husband died of fever in the West Indies, but
They had two girls Elizabeth Grace & Emma, born 1870 & 1863 The last
born in Devonport, I am presuming he died after1870.
He was a tailor by trade and I wonder what he was doing in the West
with a young family at home.
How can I find out about his death, can someone in that area have a
the 1871 census to see if he was in Plymouth at that time, he was
a Mary Ann who came from Bradworthy, I do not have their marriage
was born in 1836, making him 35yr old in 1871, I suppose it would be
for him to go on a ship from Plymouth perhaps repairing sails. Mary
married again in 1876, so presumably she had heard of his death at that
How would his death have been registered, is there a special register
deaths abroad??? Thank you in anticipation. Una Ash
