Jakeman Family Genealogy Forum
Thanks for the information about Alfred and Dorothy. This might seem an odd question but would your husband remember if Dorothy had red hair. The reason I ask is that Henry Philpott's eldest Grandaughter (Madeline) told me that in about 1934 when she was 4 years old she remembered a visitor from the UK called Aunty Dolly. She remembered this Aunty Dolly talking to her mother about Madelines'beautiful 'red' hair which at that time was long the same as Aunty Dolly's Madeline was the only one of Henry's grandchildren to have red hair. She assumed incorrectly at the time that the Aunty Dolly was Henry's sister but she may have been his cousin.I found a Alfred and Dorothy Jackman not Jakeman on a shipping list I think returning from NZ to Uk in 1934. I wonder if that could have been them. Maybe we'll never know.
Regards Helene Philpott
