CHILDREN (note:  Ellesmere is a small market town near Oswestry in north ShropshireEngland, notable for its proximity to a number of prominent lakes, the Meres. As I looked for Tetchill, I found the two names are used together as they are in very close proximity (Tetchill is actually on Ellesmere road).  So, this becomes important - Ellesmere, Tetchill, and Oswestry are within a short distance of each other and when I looked for children, marriages, etc., I looked at all three places.

Born 25 September 1876 in Wavertree, Lancashire, England
Christened  6 October 1876 Our Lady of Good Help, Liverpool, Lancashire, England (church is pictured above.  It was founded in 1871 and closed on Sunday 3rd April 2011)

Mary Munn
Parents:  James Henry Munn and Bridget Chalk
Born November 1876
Christened 10 December 1877 St. Joseph's, Liverpool, Lancashire, England
Note:  St Joseph's was founded in 1845. In January 1870 there was terrible disaster when 15 people were trampled to death because of a false fire alarm. (read more here:  http://www.old-merseytimes.co.uk/stjosephs.html )  In March 1876 the roof of the original building collapsed, and the church was subsequently rebuilt.  So Mary would have been baptized in this newer building.  It was demolished in 1979.

CHILDREN Note:  1911 Census claims 7 children born to Mary and William but at the time of the census, only four are still alive (Mary, Stephen, Francis, Bridget).  We know from records that John & Margaret died young.  I only have 6 children born before 1911, not seven.  

We are missing a child.  I did investigate a William born in 1899, but the christening documentation claimed his mother was Helen Munn, not Mary.   

Maybe Mary had a baby in November or December 1899 that did not live.  There are enough gaps we could fit a few more babies in here.  Anyone know the truth?  Please share.

Mary Ellen Kinsella
Born 25 October 1901 Liverpool, Lancashire, England

Not sure the following child belongs to them, as Mary would be 42 at the time. His mother's maiden name was listed as Munn and William T had passed away five years ago. So this is a possibility.

From The Oregonian, March 4, 1934:

"50TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATED HERE

Mr. and Mrs. George Davenport Honored at Reception.

In celebration of their 50th wedding anniversary Mr. and Mrs. George Davenport of Florence, Ore., were honored with a reception Friday at the home of their daughter, Mrs. Carl Southworth, at 1694 Southwest Montgomery drive, here.

Mr. and Mrs. Davenport were married at Arcadia, Kan., on March 2, 1884. On the same day they left for what was then Spokane Falls, Washington territory, where they settled on a homestead and lived for 13 years. When irrigation was developed in western farming, Mr. Davenport improved land consecutively in Clarkston, Wash., the Yakima valley and at Twin Falls, Idaho. In 1916 they moved to Oregon and settled near Eugene, where Mr. Davenport worked in the Booth-Kelly lumber mill at Springfield. Four years ago they moved to Florence, on the coast in Lane county, and there they are at home to their many friends who visit the beach.

The Davenports have a son, Herbert E., in Long Beach, Cal., and a grandson, Lawrence, there. They were unable to attend the golden wedding celebration. Another grandson, John Southworth, lives here.

Mr. Davenport was born near Bowling Green, Ky., on August 23, 1859. Mrs. Davenport, nee Clara Hammond, was born near Springfield, Ill., on July 5, 1861."
