I just came across a document that shows Charles Bale Dawe was a widower at age 26 which is when he married Amelia Dawe. Under the heading for father is says Isaac Dawe is Charles's fathers name and under Amelia is says her father is James Dawe. Could this be the Charles that links us?
I have to say, this is all very exciting and I cannot stop thinking about this. I love the thought of actually having family from England.
Talk soon :-)
