Thanks so much...the "short" answer is...I don't know yet! ;-)
We have a gap of perhaps three generations here..maybe only two,
depending upon numbers of children, age at childbirth, etc...
*possibly* your Jane Hocking could have been grandmother or even
gr-grandmother to mine..??
My Jane HOCKING would have been born ca 1797/98
(her age was listed as 44 in the 1841; and 53 in the 1851)
Census ages are, of course, subject to a good deal of discrepancy if not
downright error <g>...but since hers was consistent in two censuses, I
am inclined to think the guesstimated birth year to be within reason.
The census *does* state that my Jane was born Illogan...
She and husband James RICHARDS resideded in Illogan Highway 1841; he
died bef the 1851, but she was still living in Illogan Highway 1851,
noted as "widow."
So I will definitely hang onto your information. Unfortuantely, I still
have no clue as to the parents of my Jane HOCKING.
But, repetition of the name "Jane" is, at least, hopeful. ;-)
Thank you so much.
