Last week in this post I wrote about finding a descendant of John Robert MAPLETHORPE 1851-Deceased and Rebecca MAPLETHORPE (née Rebecca FORD 1855-1883), well this person whom for privacy I will refer to as PH, the gg grandaughter of Sarah Elizabeth SMITH (née Sarah Elizabeth MAPLETHORPE 1876-1962) has very kindly provided me with many interesting details for this line of the family.
My original research linking my grandmother Ivy JACKLIN (née Ivy DIXON 1901-1983) with Mary Maria DIXON / Mary Maria CARTER (née Mary Maria MAPLETHORPE 1878-1964), John Robert MAPLETHORPE 1851-Deceased (sometimes cited as John W MAPLETHORPE) and Rebecca MAPLETHORPE (née Rebecca FORD 1855-1883) proved to be correct. I have now established various dates and places though it will take sometime to collate all this information and update this site accordingly.
