Hi Nikki,

Thanks for your reply. It seems we are both descendants of the Dove family. Bazel/Bassil Dove my ggg-grandfather is the brother of your to my ggg-grandfather Osborne Dove.
Bazel's daughter Anna married Edgar Smith.

Edgar and Anna’s son Frank Smith married Lucy Hanshaw/Henshaw daughter of Samuel and Lucinda
Hanshaw parents of Alexander 'Alec' Hanshaw, Samuel Hanshaw, and Spencer Hanshaw.

I am also related through Cleo Williams daughter of John and Rosella Williams who married Henry Hanshaw. Rosetta is the sister of my great great grandfather Colly Williams they are the children of William and Heneritta Williams.

Do you know by any chance who the parents of Louisa Henshaw are, she married Charles Dove son of Bazil Dove.

It seems as though besides you and I ... shaw367 or Spencer II are all descendants of Bazil or Osborne Dove and Samuel and Lucinda Hanshaw.

I hope the three of us can stay in contact and share information.

Your Cousin,
