Re: Ferns family from Ireland

In Reply to: Re: Ferns family from Ireland by Victor Edmonds of 48

Hello Victor,

I am a cousin of Bill Ferns. Sadly Bill has passed away. His dad Noel Ferns was my uncle and it was he who married Maura Kepple. Noel's sister Millicent (Milly) was my Mum.

Both Bill and I were interested in trying to trace our Grandfather's brother Ralph who went to Canada as a young man. I understand Grandad (Sam Ferns) tried to trace his brother to no avail. I have searched shipping records and other records without having any luck. I note a Ralp Ferns remains were found in France but I have checked dates and while, his origins were Tipperary as were my grandfather's the dates do not correspond.
