Looking for any information relating to Ralph Wheatley b. About 1825 in Merrington, Durham. I believe in 1849 he married Martha in Billingham. I have been unable to find a marriage entry with both names on so I can find the maiden name of Martha. They had about 8 children and by 1851 were in Leeds. Any information or clues would be welcomed.
