red mail John Palmer Jubb
I am researching this particluar man for an article I'm writing for our local historical society in Michigan. He appears in our census in 1870 and 1880 then disappears until I find his death in 1899 in Illinois. The little information I've been able to find is that he was born in Drax, England on 14 Oct 1832. He was married to Esther Sutter. He was an inventor and held 3 patents as well as an engineer. I'm using this particular site because I've seen many Jubb names in this area. I'd appreciate your help.

red mail LEE/CRABTREE looking for information
I am looking for information on some ancestors. I was able to find that Thomas LEE and Hannah CRABTREE were married in the registration district of Dewsbury in the West Riding of Yorkshire in the first quarter of 1889. The reference in the General Register Office (GRO) index is volume 9b, page 663. At the time of the 1901 census - there were no records of them and their son Joseph Edward Lee - was living with his grandmother Sarah Crabtree - but not Tom or Hannah - I am assuming they both died prior to 1901. I have been unable to locate any death certificates etc. Also, I am searching for information in their parents. I know that Tom's dad was Samuel "Sam" Lee and I don't have anything for his wife. Hannah's mother's name was Sarah A. but she was widowed at the time of the 1891 & 1901 census' ... Any information or guidance would be appreciated
