Who was Ellis Ogilvie? After another half hour reading all the reports for any clues I hit gold! I did a happy dance!!!
This photo above was taken before Rex married and it seems his training in the Fleet Air Arm as an Aircraft Mechanic…….
After being able to return the lovely photo of Agnes to a direct descendant a couple of weeks ago, Dick has very kindly sent me more images of the the family
These two lovely Postcard Photos I couldn’t resist, they are just adorable children aren’t they……..
Agnes Jane AKERS married Charles William SLY at the beginning of 1880 in Cardiff, Glamorgan, Wales
Scrolling through Ebay one evening I noticed this absolutely beautiful glass Ambrotype photo, unframed, of a couple, taken I thought probably 1855/60’s
I never imagined it would take me on a journey to the Netherlands, Sweden, Milan, Italy, Sunderland, Durham. Also connections to Christopher Columbus and even the Queen of Holland
Having spent about four days worth of research on these Old Photos it’s time to give in. Have I missed something, so if you have any ideas or inspiration I would love to hear from you!
The bride was attired in an ivory charmeuse (Silk) dress, trimmed with French lace and pearls, and carried a sheaf of lilies.
Found recently at the Fleamarket & what a surprise I had when I got home & turned this one over!
