Jonn, I followed Jean's lead too and got hte same info as you did. Robert and Catherine did indeed have many children, so I might research them for a bit to see if I get any further. I found a DC for Robert - he looks to have left the farm work and became a dock labourer only to be struck by a crane...

I assumed that the only way the father would be named on the DC would be if he was also named on the BC. I am relatively confident that the Robert Allan Hannah born in...
