I wonder if anyone can point me in the right direction please?
I have Austin Smith born abt 1831 in Ireland. He is in Liverpool for the 1851 census. He marries in Liverpool in 1858 but he never appears again. His children are born between 1860 and 1871. I know he is a mariner so maybe he's always at sea for the census but there shoud be a death registered somewhere although I can't find it. His wife remarried in 1879. I did find one Austin Smith's death at sea but this chap was ten years older than mine and it said he was from Nova Scotia. Any ideas please?
