Hi I am looking for information of descendants of Alfred E Cherry born in 1913 in the Tamworth area - his mother's maiden name was Masna. I am trying to find out if her first name was Obdulia, born c1874 in Gibralter - if so she is my husband's great grandmother who was previously married to John Thomas Evans. I think Alfred had a sister called Frances born in 1915. Does anyone know what happened to Obdulia - we cannot find details of her death anywhere. Any information regarding Alfred and Frances much appreciated - they perhaps don't know they have a family of half-cousins trying to find them! Obdulia had 5 children with her 1st husband. thanks
