I am trying to trace my family tree and am looking for any connections to a Hiram France, born in 1857/1858 in (we think) Dewsbury, Yorkshire. He was a stonemason. His father was called John and he is also listed as being a stonemason. I know Hiram moved to Wales in around 1880 but was back in the Manchester/Salford area by mid 1890. He died in 1900. I have hit a bit of a brick wall so would be grateful for any input. Thanks. Julie :)
I originally thought "Hiram France" would be an easy name to search for, but it seems it is quite common, particularly in the Dewsbury area. Does anyone else perhaps have a connection to this name?
