Dorothy's torn birth certificate

Dorothy's torn birth certificate

Father - Alexander Powell Gas Stoker

Father - Alexander Powell Gas Stoker
A Florence Dunn aged 10 appeared on the 1891 Census living at no 63 Chatham Street , St Saviour Trinity Newington. This seems rather too much of a coincidence for her not to be Dorothy's mother at the age of 15/16. Chatham Street was in walking distance of the Docks where Alexander would have landed from the USA and was full of lodging houses. There is no marriage recorded between Florence and Alexander.

The only Florence L Dunn to marry a Powell on the whole BMD Index during that period.
Certainly NOT our great grandparents

Dorothy's grandparents came from Prussia according to the US census her grandfather was a Glassdealer possibly in Prussian glasswear. The Prussian borders changed many times and incorporated parts of Lithuania Germany and Poland over the years.
