the joy of birth and marriage certificates

Finally, after four weeks wait, the various certificates ordered came through. From these I discsovered that James and Charles Haley’s mother was called Charlotte Warner and her father Charles Warner, who worked on the river. So the boys followed their maternal grandfather’s profession rather than their father’s. I wonder how that felt for Joseph. Interesting.
