Re: Message for Eric Gelling re: USA Gellings

[I hope this isn't duplicated, my draft response just "disappeared" before sending.
As my main focus is the Kermodes, I am/was mainly interested in Raisbeck (Francis and Ann Kermode who emigrated to Australia) and Gelling (Francis and Margaret Isabella Kermode), although of course its goods to get information on the extended family. At times the linkage for others gets a bit thin, but since the information is there, I record it. I will keep an eye open for any further info on the Raisbecks/Gellings/Kermodes and let you know if I find any further evidence of ship travel etc.

Regarding James Hoskin. I have his first marriage (7 May 1873 in Darlington, Wis) to Jane Anne Franklin (b. 7 May 1853, Benton; d. 13 May 1887, Darlington). They had children (all b. Benton); Elizabeth Jane (b. 5 June 1875); John Franklin (b. 6 May 1881) and Christoper Elmer (b. 23 Apr 1883; d. 12 Dec 1939 in Hennepin, Minn.).
