Amy is on the 1901census but not Frederick I have searched all things but cannot find him hope you can help me I am trying to find him between 1891 and 1907 when he died many thanks Norma
Norma, I get the impression you have his death certificate. What was the cause of death please?
Have sent you some details of Fred by email
Hi Lyn ,have not got the email yet ..
Norma, that was a long term illness. It is likely he was more in hospital than out over many years before his death. Suspect that is where he was in 1901, or possibly convalescing somewhere, perhaps a long way away. This is based on my experience with my father who died age 42 of the same illness.
Assume you know that Amy had another partner, Fred Herberts, before Fred died. she eventually married him in 1913.
I sent it to your email address - check if it is correct - maybe it has gone to your junk box because there were some attachments. If not email me direct on my email address so I know I have your correct one
Hi, I am still trying to find Frederick marsh my gg grandfather,born1866 death 1907 Sheffield union hospital,I know he had some suicide problems as I find him in Sheffield newspapers. I can find his wife Amy on1901 census but not him please can you help I keep looking at the 1901 census but he is not to be found .many thanks
Sorry I cannot help you with Frederick Marsh in 1901 but I was wondering if you had found another possible child, Carl Marsh B:1895 at Four Lane End/Handsworth. Carl was living with his grandparents, John & Emily Eaton in 1901 and with widowed, Emily Eaton in 1911.
A possible marriage for Carl was in 1919 Ecclesall Bierlow to Maria Hastings, they had a number of children.
The last possible child of Fred and Amy Marsh could be Nellie, Born 1903 (shows up on 1911 census when Amy is now a widow and housekeeping for Frederick Herberts (I believe Dave referenced this earlier).
Just an idea but if people were in workhouses etc on the census they sometimes just used the initials so could he be there somewhere but just as F M?
Thank you for your help, i after three years of searching for Fred or Frederick marsh I think I should let him rest, for a while . Until I can think of something else . Many thanks .
