My name is Chloe and I work at Cornwall Record Office in Truro, Cornwall, England. We hold a series of letters from Richard J Scoble that he wrote to his mother after emigrating to the USA; I believe he is your ancestor as your research through the censuses supports mine! I'm about to start a research project about these fascinating letters (which are also about to feature in a BBC TV series!). I'm happy to share all the results of my research with you (when I have any!) and, in the meantime, I was hoping you might be able to help me by telling me when Richard J Scoble died and if you, by any chance, have a photo of him? I'd also be interested in any other information that you can share. I look forward to hearing from you.
