Unnamed parent
In several instances on my family tree where a child was born before the parents married the child has had to retain the mother's maiden name. In 1859 Matthew Draper was born just 4 weeks before his mother Elizabeth Draper married Joseph Melling and we have always thought that Joseph was Matthew's father. However on both Matthews birth/marriage certificate father's name is blank. what reason could there be for this, it seems strange considering that his mother married so soon after his birth.. It seems certain that Joesph brought Matthew up as his own as I remember several Melling cousins/aunts/uncles in the family Any ideas welcome

joseph draper
Joseph married Elizabeth Westwood at St John Baptist Atherton l906. There were 2 sons Frank b1906 Ernest 1909 and one daughter Annie 1910. In 1929 Joseph committed suicide at a lodging house in Bolton. His brother Henry Cowburn paid for him to be buried in Tyldesley Cemetery. In 1954 Henry was buried in same grave and in l966 his wife Clara was also buried there. 3 of Henry and Clara's grandchildren have paid for a memorial stone to Henry, Clara and Joseph. Would any of Joseph's descendants like further details? Also I would like details of what happened to Joseph's marriage.

MORLEY, Joseph Vincent
I am trying to find out where Joseph came from. Family lore has it he is from Wigan, or perhaps Wiggen. His death certificate is inconclusive. In any case; Joseph, son of Own Morley and Mary O'Dea, was born 13 May 1863, moved to Ohio as a child, was naturalized in 1884, and died in Youngstown OH in 1915. He was a puddler in the steel mills. There is much to share on his 8 children and numerous greats and great greats. Love to have some help, Any clues?
