Now found John William France b1884, he was born in Hyde Cheshire England. His father was Joseph Booth France b1853 Stalybridge Cheshire England. He moved to the US sometime in the 1870's ended up in Halifax Nova Scotia Canada, he was listed as a sergeant in the 87th regiment when he married October 1875 to Mary Shea b1855 in Nova Scotia. When his first child was born Mary Emma France b1877 he was listed as a policeman. They then moved to Ireland where his second daughter was born Frances Jane France b1878. By 1881 he was back in Stalybridge Cheshire England where the rest of his children were born. Mary Shea's parents were called Thomas and Mary Shea, if anyone has further info on the Shea's could please contact me.
