Joseph Featherstone has two children William Wass Featherstone registered in the Jun Quarter of 1894 and John Frank Featherstone registered in Sep quarter of 1897 both have a record in the new GRO indexes of a mothers name of Wass, to confirm this Joseph in the 1901 Census is a widower but living with him is his Mother in law also a widow with the surname of Wass. I cannot find a Death or a marriage in Bransdale cum Farndale Parish records. Can you find a marriage so I can complete the family?

What happened to George?

I last find him in 1891 living with his brother Robert in the High Street in Skelton, can’t find him in 1901, Can you?

Found him in Scotton, near Knaresborough with the Andrew family as a Stable Groom. More research needed
