Hello Elizabeth
I am helping the husband of a cousin of mine (Margaret Bray) to find out something about Margaret's family history.
I typed Ruth Hancock Percy Bray into google and came up with your page.
Margaret's mother, Ruth Hancock, appears on the page of George and Eliza Hancock as the daughter of Albert Edward Hancock. Ruth wed my uncle Percy Bray.
My cousin Margaret Earnshaw wed a second time to an Englishman Michael Earnshaw and lived in England for many years but died a year ago. Michael is trying to find out something of Margaret's mother's family and I said I would help him. I was very excited to find your page. I would love to hear from you. Judy Traill
