I am seeking any descendants of Joseph William Rackett and Alice Maud Mary Rackett (nee Squibb). Have just discovered that Alice died in Los Angeles on the 13th November 1947. They had three children Annie Kate b.1892 James Henry Frank b.1896 and Charlotte Florence b. 1899. One of the descendants visited Josephs parents house in Ryde Isle of Wight during WW2 in the hope of seeing the family home but it seems to have been an inconvenient moment for the great aunt who lived there and opened the door but did not even welcome him or invite him in. This shameful act was condemned by the rest of the family when they knew but were unable to establish contact ever after (hardly surprising). Whilst I am several generations later I am keen to try to make amends.
Any information on possible connections with this family would be much appreciated
