comments: I believe I am related to Henry Buller directly on my Grandfathers side.

I am doing a family tree acestry search and needed your opinion.
I have a link under 'Watts Phillips' family tree.
Getting nowhere but 'missing links' in historical records.

Hope you can help as my Grandfather Ivor is being given dimentia drugs in Cornwall but would like to 'bind' a Redvers family tree with a Golden Leopard on it for a 'pressie' and sign of my love.

comments: My late mother in law, Catherine Frazer Cavanagh's mother was Catherine Courtney. She married Thomas Frazer here about 1890. He arrived about 1885. I don't know if they were acquainted there or not. I think he came from Lurgan, and there were Tippings in his family. Would appreciate any info, please. Thanks much.
