From on Fri, 23 Nov 2007
My grandmother was May Lilian Treganowan (daughter of John Ambrose Treganowan). My grandmothers sister (total of four siblings) was born on 29th of July 1911. Her full name (maiden) is Doris Isabella Treganowan. For some reason she is not mentioned in your records.
Although she was married, she was married post 1940 and there were no children. John Treganowan had children from his first marriage but they died in infancy. There is no mention of them, but although I cannot give any specifics of them off the top of my head, if I chase up the correct info on either their births or deaths would it be of use to you?

That one was the son of John Michell Treganowan and Ann Clemmow. Although his brothers went to America, he stayed in Cornwall.He died in 1894 and is buried with his mother. "Your" Australian Henry was from the Feock family. Kind regards, another Elizabeth!
