I finally solved the puzzle to my Harry/Trevorrow family mystery. My Grandfather, Richard Harry Trevorrow, was wanted by the law for stealing horses, so shortened his name to Richard Harry, and used incorrect information on his records in Michigan; using a dead brothers' date of birth (Feb. 6 or 7 on some records), with his own year of birth of 1884 (his true d.o.b. was Jan. 29), and using his Grandfathers' name (Wm Harry) and mother's first name, Mary, along with a Great Aunt's last name, Care, as his parents names on marriage record in MI. Boy, what a hard puzzle this was to figure out! But now I am finding ancestors and records in England, finally!
