Greetings Step Cousins. I say this because Omar did not father a family. He married his widowed secretary Annie Emily Downs-Butcher (nee Berriff). She had children Gerald and Joan who married a doctor James Lascelles-Gilmore. They had several children and I know of two who live in the Midlands here in the UK, I am near Manchester. What is your connection ?

In my Ramsden family research Omar was a first cousin twice removed. I have a lot of info on him; much is written about him but much is inaccurate or simply not true. There is a chap over here preparing to write a book on Omar to set out the true facts.

Omars father was Benjamin who went to Meriden Conn in 1897 but I cannot find what became of him - does anyone know? Bens brother Frederick was my GGF.

I suggest you email me on
