  • Notes 
    • The following information was received from Ida Calder in Pensacola, Florida, a grand-daughter of Edith Duncan:

      "Just reviewing the info you sent this morning. Alfred James Deacon was married 26 Oct 1896 to Edith Duncan in Faversham, but he must have come to America soon after that because Annie, his oldest daughter by Edith Duncan, was born in 1898, Alfred J., Jr. 1900 and my mother Ethel 1902 and Clara in 1903 etc. I know that he went back a few times to visit. He resided at 75 West St, which was Charlotte Hutchings address at the time of his marriage to Edith. She lived at 57 West Street."

      The family lived in Amherst, New Hampshire for approximately 5 years prior to Edith's death. Prior to that time Edith lived in Milford, New Hampshire. Death certificate of Edith D. Deacon is very sparse on her parents details. The only known information was that her maiden surname was Duncan and that her father had been a fisherman. Edith's date of death is recorded as 27 November 1932 at age 55 years, 2 months and 27 days. Birthplace recorded is England and date of birth as being 30 August 1877. She was of white colour and married at the time of her death. Her occupation is given as housewife and cause of death as chronic diabetic for a duration of years. The death certificate was issued by the State of New Hampshire number DO541968 on 1 Dec 2000.

      An Ellis Island passenger record shows Edith Duncan arriving at New York on 20 August 1894 having arrived via the ship "Berlin" which set sail from England at Southampton. She was 16 years old at that time.
