Got a DOD for Adaline Marryatt (2nd gr-g’mother) yesterday and have ordered death certificates for her and hubby James. In Adaline’s case, that should yield at least her maiden name and possibly parents’ name(s). Which will start the Stewart process for her in Maryland.
James Marryatt will be more difficult. Although I know a fair amount about him (thanks to the exploits of Clarence King; more on him in a future post), I haven’t a clue how to track genealogy in Jamaica in the middle of the 19th century.
