Thanks for your help:)

I think I have got more of that info on my tree:) However I found so many John married to Sarahs -it is hard for me to figure our who is who(lol)

I found a John Morris Chambers born 1841 in Portsea-parents john James Chambers & Sarah- But am not 100% sure he belongs to my John & Sarah Snuggs?? (Some people seem to have a Sarah Cotton as mother of John Morris)

This John Morris is on the 1911 Census:

Name: John Morris Chambers
Age in 1911: 70
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1841
Relation to Head: Head
Gender: Male
Birth Place: Ham, Hampshire, England
Civil parish: Clerkenwell St James and Clerkenwell St John
County/Island: London
Country: England
Street Address: 52 St Johns Square, Clerkenwell E C
Marital Status: Widowed

I found a Charles Chambers (B abt 1835-38)-married to an Elizabeth- But once again- I do not know if Charles Robert married or not??

Do you know if Charles & Rebecca (Harris)Snuggs had other children? I found Charles, Eliza, John , Ann, Robert, William , Elisabeth, Sarah & John so far:)

Thanks again,
