Thanks very much for getting back in touch, Di. I'm ashamed to say I still
haven't worked out how to get onto Rootsweb beyond 'list' contact, but I was
very interested to read the message you forwarded me from Richard Kearns in
My mother has been doing some digging around since our last communication and
sent me a bundle of papers relating suggesting that there is very likely a
family connection. Are you able to forward this message to Richard?
I have established that my great-grandfather, Richard Elliffe, was married to
a Mary Kearns, sometime late in the 19th Century. My grandfather, Thomas
Elliffe, was born on 3 April 1894, their fourth child, and died 22 March
1960. I have a copy of his birth certificate (a photostat produced in August
1943, dating from 7 April 1894 - amazing, I didn't know photocopying
technology went back that far!). The spelling on his birth cert leaves off
the last 'e' ('Elliff') but his death cert spells the surname correctly.
Just as interestingly, his mother's birthplace is given as 'Conn.'
(presumably Connecticut) - Richard K said in his message to me that he has a
cousin in Connecticut so ... the trail seems to be leading somewhere.
I'd be interested to know how you're getting on with your own research. In
the meantime, best wishes and Happy New Year!
