This orphan has been claimed by: Rhys Williams

She is the sister of my great great grandmother, Amy Naylor Richardson.


As far as i have been able to find, she married in 1861 to a James Triffett (Triffit, Triffet) And had 4 children, two boys whose names were not on the birth records (Perhaps they died young?) and two girls,  Ada Elizabeth Ann Triffet in 1863, and Mary Jane Triffet in 1867. I have her death as 1932, but that is based on documentation i am having trouble locating.
