In Reply to: Sophia Wearne, 1839-1913, md James Wicks by Barbara Cady of 109

Hi, Barbara, We've "met" before as we both seem to have families that married each other in Linden. My great great great grandmother was Catherine Wearne, then she married Joseph Bowden in St. Blazey. Joseph was from Phillack. The Wearnes seem to have been for centuries and centuries from St. Agnes. In fact, I was re-looking for the Wearne Family Tree that dates back to @ 1040, before the Norman Conquest for goodness sake! Seems this "tree" was in the front of a Bible that made its way to Linden. The possessor of said book also kept a diary. He was Catherine's brother, whose name I can find but at the moment it escapes me. He, too, ended up in Linden. Since Catherine was born in 1806, my guess would be that Sophia was probably her niece. If I find the "tree" I'll let you know....Gay in Washington
