My brick wall is my gg/gmother, Henrietta Knight, b.1860, in Florida. Married Daniel Bradbury Hunter around 1877, as they already had two children in the 1880 Census, living in Palestine, FL (North Central, btwn Lake City and Alachua). Can't find her parents. She is not in the 1870 Census, but I do know that there are pages missing from that census for New River (later, Bradford County). Perhaps she went by another name until her marriage. There are Knights all over this area, but they didn't keep great records.
I'm wondering how I can find old church records (where would they be kept if the church is now defunct), because I know that the Knights were largely Primitive Baptist, and there must be baptism records, marriage records, etc. somewhere out there. Thanks for any help!
My brick wall is to find living relatives. My Grandmother came to Canada in 1909 from England as a Barnardo child. I have all the details, we have the papers from Barnardo and I have ordered tons of certificates. I have been looking for over 15 yrs. THere were three girls left behind in England and we are looking for their children as they would be my Mom's first cousins or their children. I have all the names and I noticed someone from England posted they would help for research there.....
THe names are Elizabeth, Eliza and Rose Mary Newland. Rose was born roughly 1904 and we found a matching marriage record for her to Robert Baden Parker. THeir parents are George Newland (passed in 1908) and ELizabeth Newman. We found a remarriage for Elizabeth Louisa (the Mother) to one Harry Edwards. I have pictures of Alice and Elizabeth.......Alice would have to be in her 30's. Problem is Rose died when my Mom was only 10 yrs old and all of the letters she had with her sisters/Mother were destroyed by my Mom's stepmother. Rose was born in Acton and the family seemed to live in that area as all marriages etc., were Acton/Brentford. The older two girls were born in Kensington. I have a lot more information if anyone thinks they may be able to help. firstname.lastname@example.org My Mom is now 77 and finding her Mother's family after so many years would be an absolute dream for her.
