Row, Treleigh, Redruth, Cornwall In 1871 There is no sign of Francis & Rebecca but their second son William Francis Body is living with his Brown grandparents (I might have found Francis with a new wife Elizabeth & eldest son Francis in the 1870 US Census in Rockaway Township, Morris, New Jersey) ---------------------------------------- 5 M: William BROWN Birth: abt 1843 Hayle/Phillack, Cornwall Death: aft 1861 Occupation: Blacksmith ---------------------------------------- 6 F: Mary Ann Mitchell BROWN Birth: 1847 Hayle/Phillack, Cornwall Death: aft 1871 Occupation: Agricultural Labourer I have manage to locate the Brown family in 1851 onwards but can't find them in 1841 despite having used both the Cornish Census Search & the Familyhistoryonline sites. In 1851 they are at Churchtown, St Erth, Cornwall In 1861 they are at Hadder's(?) Row, Treleigh, Redruth, Cornwall In 1871 they are at North Road Loscombe, Illogan, Cornwall In 1881 William is a widower in the household of his son-in-law William Dowrick at Trewonal, Lamorran, Cornwall Any further information on the marriage of William & Elizabeth 29 May 1830 would also be appreciated.
