We have been looking for any information concerning Frederick John Hillman born 7th July 1867 in Hayle, Phillock, Cornwall who in 1887 was living with his family in The School House, Countess Wear and in the inquest into the death of his younger brother Edward Hillman by drowning was identified as a Telegraph Clerk aged 17 per a newspaper report. Other members of his family are on the memorials in the churchyard at St Luke's in Countess Wear. After that no more information found.
Belated thanks for your thoughts and advise. We think we can see Frederick John on a passenger list London to New York in 1889 which may be what happened to him. So far no further information found about him after that.
