red mail Willis - Edward Thomas
Edward was born 1873, married to Mary Ann which I believe to be Eliz. Maryann Christopher. Sons between 1899 and 1905, Edward, George J, Thomas J and Joseph W. I am trying to locate Edward's parents (1873) unfortunately census has 2 families and I don't have any clues to work with. Edward Thomas Willis 1873 apparently went to sea around 1905-11 and never returned. Anecdotal evidence is that he jumped ship in Australia. Can anyone help please, it would be good to know which family on 1881 census he did NOT belong to. Regards Sheila
