red mail Looking Kate Stanton nee Packer
Trying to trace Kate Stanton who left her husband in Bridgend and went to live with a man with the surname of Stephens/stevens in Kenfig around 1904 birth date 1867 -cannot find any death record for her. It is belived (family folklore) that she had several children with this man but never married him so their surname would be Stanton also. She is not on the Census for 1911 -but she may have dodged this for a reason. It seems she just disappeared can anyone help me with this?
