My grandmother, Rose Elsie Burton (nee Jepson, now deceased), was a daughter of a Thomas Jespon, whose 1st wife and daughter died in the Sheffield flood. Thomas subsequently remarried, to Elizabeth Marsden, who was my great grand mother. Thomas & Elizabeth were married Feb. 6, 1865.

According to 1881 British Census and Rose Elsie's recollections, Thomas and Elizabeth had a # of children: Thomas, Harry, John William, Isabella and Rose Elsie and Blanche (may have been more brothers?).

My mother, Margaret Duncan (nee Burton) was the daughter of Rose Elsie and Richard Burton. She was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada after Richard and Rose Elsie immigrated.

I am emailing on behalf of my mother who has been investigating lineage although she is not computer savvy.
