I'm new here and posted this under the CURNOW surname in the Surnames of Interest. Then, I saw to post new queries here. Sorry about the double up...
I am looking for ancestry on Elizabeth CURNOW (1783-1828). She was married to James THOMAS (1778-1853). They were married on 11 April 1814 at Ludgvan, Cornwall. He died on 29 March 1853. She died on 3 December 1828. They are buried at St Euny Churchyard, Redruth. James' baptism date is 10 May 1778. His baptism took place at St Uny, Redruth. They had a son, Henry who was born in 1817. I don't know if they had any other children.
I need Elizabeth's parents to confirm who my great great grandfather is. The William Curnow that we know of turned up in Hill End, NSW in about 1871 and went missing from Hill End/Katoomba, NSW in about 1873. He was born in 1843 in Cornwall. His son, William Curnow, born 1872 at Hill End, NSW is my great grandfather.
DNA is pointing me to this Elizabeth, but I cannot link the DNA to other family trees without knowing more about this Elizabeth.
I hope someone can assist me as I have searched Ancestry, My Heritage and Find My Past and I can't find her birth details.
