For all who have Susan Caldwell Burgess (born Downs), born in 1893, featuring in their family tree, she was my grand mother., and a real sweetie She was born Susan Downs Caldwel (Downs was her middle name, not surname) in Scotland in 1893, to Jessie Caldwell (nee MacGregor) and Hugh Caldwell, I think in Alexandria, on Clydebank (I assume she was born in the family home there). She emigrated to Tasmania (she was a teacher) and married my grandfather, Arnold Edwin Burgess, in Tasmania. They settled in Wynyard and had five children: Elaine, Graham, Douglas, Muriel Jean (my mother) and Marjorie MacGregor.
I'm looking for information about my grandmother's aunt Marie Heirendt, who emigrated from Luxembourg to the United States in 1940. She lived in Providence, Rhode Island and was married to Mr. Thomas De Petrillo. Her husband died in 1969 and the last letter our family got from Marie was written in 1980.
So if anyone could help me with some information about the Heirendt / De Petrillo family after 1980 or has ideas where to do more research, I would be very grateful.

Hi, I have searched for my great grandmother for about five years with no luck. Her name was Ellen Abbot on the 1881 census aged 23 born in Little Dawley, Shropshire. Later that year she married my great grandfather Robert Agar. But I cannot find any sign of her prior to that date.
On succeeding census forms she states she was born in Madeley, Ironbridge and Dawley. On her marriage certificate her father is given as James Abbot. Apparently she always told family that she was born in Little Dawley and went into service aged 9 years. There was some connection to Broseley where a relative 'worked in a china factory'(?) and we had some plates supposedly made by that peron or sent from that person.
My assumption is that either she was illegitimate and took her stepfathers name when her mother married; or her natural father died and she took stepfathers name. Or even that her employers didn't like the forename she came with and changed it. I have searched for Ellen without a surname and Abbot without a forename plus numerous variatons of 'Abbot' and 'Ellen'.
Anyone have an ideas?
