Hi Murphyslib, my father used to work for a man called Frank Sephton in the late 50s at a company called Red House Motors in Cov.

Hello Everyone First of all may I say a big thank you to Annewiggy for your brilliant deduction, you were spot on that Sarah Mitchell Sephton married Finlay James Mcdonald. As I said I sent for this marriage certificate and it arrived today and it confirms that it is indeed Sarah Mitchell Sephton ms Linn, one or two mistakes on the certificate though, it states the she was a spinster, and that her father John Linn was deceased, John never died till 1954. In fact her marriage to W H Sephton also stated that her father was deceased, maybe they had a fallen out and disowned each other I don’t know. Also thanks to Philex31 for your follow up about Finlay McDonald and your amazing speculation, I will follow all this up in the coming weeks, I cant thank you enough. Primrose, Heathite & Dave Owens many thanks for all your thoughts with out you guy’s the problem wouldn’t have been solved. Regards Murphyslib

Hello Everyone Further to my topic on "Sephtons" recently, I have obtained a death certificate (1966) for a Sarah McDonald hoping it may say (formerly Sephton) ms Linn. Unfortunately this Death Certificate tells me little if it is the correct lady I’m looking for, it just gives her name as Sarah McDonald wife of ………. McDonald occupation unknown, and the address of 10 Upper Ride Coventry. Can anyone look up this address for my starting at 1966 and going backwards a few years? I also purchased a Death certificate also for a Finlay James McDonald in 1973 Bournemouth, hoping this was Sarah’s husband but again it gives no clues if this is correct, no name is entered in for a spouse or who his parents were. Hope someone can help. Regards Murphyslib

All I can find on Ancestry is that the Sarah Mcdonald that lived at 10 Upper Ride left probate to a Vera May Warwick, spinster £494.

On 9th Sep 2015 12:59am, Murphyslib said: . . . So I am trying to find when Sarah & William passed away, this may or may not be in Coventry, and was hoping someone could help me the addresses on the certificate are, Sarah lived at 48 Eden Street & William lived at 741 Stoney Stanton Road Coventry.
I don't know if this helps but William Sephton (birth year 1881) was the only occupant of 741 Stoney Stanton Rd in September 1939 (search.findmypast.co.uk), and the 48 Eden St address was the home of Walter Simcox (Stanton) born 1915, and Clare Stanton born 1912 (search.findmypast.co.uk).

In the 1939 register, there are only the following Sarahs in Coventry who were born in 1901: Colgan Hamilton Osborne Shirley Wright You could narrow down which if any by searching on the exact birth date, which can be found from the birth certificate at the scotlandspeople website, there is only one Sarah Mitchell Linn born that year. Unfortunately this involves two costs, one for the website and one for the certificate. Or was there not a date of birth on the 1966 death certificate? Note there are also two marriages for her in Scotland, one in 1941 and one in 1970 so it's likely the name isn't unique. Edited by member, 4th Nov 2015 12:05 pm
