Oh Miriam you are so wonderful!!! Lots more to look at now :)
I hadnt thought of looking for an obituary! His death certificate is sadly lacking in any real detail so a search for that may give me some more insight.
Im also in the process of getting as many records here as I can about the daughters he had with a woman he was seeing before, during and after he married my 3rd great grandmother in the hope that there may even be a middle name for him on one of his daughter's marriage certificates. Such a naughty boy our John was LOL
Thank you again so very much!!!
