      Here is one of the families we are researching.

      Thomas Ellwood and Hannah Lowery lived in the Whitehaven area. They had 13
      children, but 12 of them have vanished without a trace. Only one, Robert,
      seems to have married and left descendants (lots of them!)

      We have found records of the baptism of the other 12, but nothing further --
      no record of marriage or death.

      Does anyone else know what happened to any of them?

      Here they are?
