Re: Too many Florence M.'s
Hi Judith. Yes, wondered initially if Haunts was a Hans and sounding a bit phonetic, but then thought about Hansel and Gretel, so had looked it up. It is one of the brothers Grimm collected fairy stories from 1812. Previously found a "string" in British Genealogy & Family History Forums>Family History>Brickwalls>Florence Marqueen Murrain (of 2012) started by someone wanting to find information about their great grandmother, Florence, and her Austrian connection. It is interesting in that it describes information known in the family about her so Louisa must have told her daughter all about her father, though whether she told it corrrectly must now be questionable. Also interesting that none of the responders could come up with anything positive to help. A vivid imagination, or ravings of a desperate person, often helps !!
