Craniford, Young
Hi from Worcester UK. We are looking for any information about Olivia Craniford, born 1885 in St John's, who married Henry Young circa 1903. They may have had eight children and we think that Henry died in 1918. Olivia married again in 1919 to Peter Sorensen.
Any help would be greatly appreciated as it will enable us to start to make progress again!
Regards Roger Savage.
