Hi Sam that’s fantastic. At least l have some dates and maybe his full name now, on which to search for his birth registration document. It’s amazing how often names or spellings seemed to change in those days. So it does look as though Joseph Close had another brother that l didn’t know about. If as it suggest that William Burrowes Close was married in Canada and Joseph lived most of his adult life in India, why neither son appeared in Their fathers will. If l wanted to share Joseph’s biography and how he lived his life and career, how best could l share it and do you think people would be interested?
