Hi Paxie

William John HARTLEY's first wife was Sarah GREEN.

Mary Anna HARTLEY was William John HARTLEY's daughter with his third
wife, Mary CAWOOD.

Altogether, I have William John HARTLEY having 16 children - 3 with his
first wife Sarah, 2 with his second wife Hannah and 11 with his third
wife Mary.

Howzit Becky,
Just a word in here on William John and his marriages.
He was 24 odd when he arrived at the Cape.
Without confirmed sources and only the HARTLEY gedcom to go by, I have
he married Hannah BAKER and Mary CAWOOD as below but the Sarah was not a

CAWOOD in my records and they had a daughter Mary Anna 4 April 1834 d 2
1906 who married Ezra Thomas RIDGARD b 1 Aug 1830 d 27 May 1905. I am
sure this is not a correct connection so perhaps someone could advise.
Best wishes

Hi HARTLEY researchers

About two weeks ago I sent a query to the list on behalf of Marielle
pertaining to a William HARTLEY. Thanks to Lynn McLeod and Ellen Stanton
assisted me so generously off-list with further leads. Lynn suggested
I send a query to Marielle's contact to try and find out more and post
findings to the list. Unfortunately I haven't received a response yet,
while waiting I decided to clean up my HARTLEY file. I have quite a few
queries, so please indulge me while I try to sort out my file.
