Dear Elizabeth

While recently searching the internet we discovered your page on Henry Horatio Raven and would like to tell you that in regards to Charles Raven (2nd June 1869 to 14 March 1951) he in fact had five children the first of whom you are missing: Reginald Charles Raven born. 21st March 1913 died. June 1994. He was my maternal grandfather. It may also interest you to know that Charles Matthew Raven died on the 16th of June 1943 in a military aricraft accident in the Sudan and is burried in the Commonwealth war cemetary in Khartoum. We have slightly different dates for Marianne Sophie Jane Pallot (born 23rd May 1887). We also believe that Henry Horatio's father was also Henry Horatio Raven and his mother's first name was Elizabeth. We believe he was born in about 1800 and married in approximatley 1825.
