Thank you for the message. You must be my cousin Susan. I believe we met only once when we were children. I hope life has treated you well!
Yes, I would be interested in finding out about Holgate. Here is the mystery: my grandfather celebrated his birthday on March 9th. This is an unforgettable fact as it was my mother's birthday (Flo) and mine (Lesley). The Holgate born in 1846 was born on 9th March - supposed to have died aged four. The Holgate born 10 years later was born in late March. He admitted to being much older than Eva by some 18 years, but I am wondering how much older.Eva was born in 1868, I believe. The only research I have done is on the 'net, but I have worked back as far as our "First Fleeters." Any extra information would be much appreciated.
