Search for Kenneth's relatives
Posted on June 13, 2007
I told you last week about a search for relatives of the late Kenneth George Evans, who used to live in Eaton Bray. You'll remember that I'd been contacted by someone looking back through family history and searching for information about Kenneth.
Linda Budd is researching the family tree of her partner Richard Evans, and needed a helping hand from Gazette readers.
She was looking for more information about Richard's uncle Kenneth George Evans.
They had thought that Kenneth died in the Second World War, but then found out that in fact he survived the war, and died in 1995.
The last known address that she could find for Kenneth was in Knights Close, Eaton Bray.
Richard's father was killed when his RAF plane came down on Dartmoor in 1941, on the day before he was born.
As he never knew his own father, he was very interested to hear that his uncle had survived the war.
I was pleased to hear that, following the mention in the Gazette, they have been contacted by various helpful folk - and an email has winged its way to them from one of Kenneth's sons.
Linda and Richard have now discovered several generations of relatives that they didn't know existed.
And they would like to thank everyone for all their help.
As I always say, if you want to know something, ask a Gazette reader.
