Liz Mazonowicz (Greenwich UK), is looking for a Henry (Harry) George ORGAN b about 1833 in Berkley(?) Gloucestershire. In 1877 he was a cattle dealer and in 1881 he was a general labourer. He was the lover of my widowed gt gt grandmother Hannah SWIFT (b SMITH). He is named, and present at the registration, as the father of their twins George and Elizabeth born 18th July 1877 in Egham Surrey. Poor Hannah died shortly before the 1881 Census at Frog's Island, Egham. She was widowed in 1874 and both she and her husband died of TB. Harry was left with the twins and Hannah's youngest daughter by her marriage, Ellen SWIFT who was 9 years old. I have had no luck in tracing these three children, or Harry ORGAN. I don't think they stayed in Egham. Hannah had family there (gypsies who had settled en masse in Egham) but tho' I can account for the rest of her SWIFT children there is no sign of these three. I suspect Harry may have been married already so I don't know if he would have gone back to Gloucestershire. Would love some help with this mystery!
