Yes, I have the same dates. Etheline and Nathaniel were my great great grandparents. Their daughter Selina Clementina married George Hubert Leech, and their son Sidney John Leech married Elizabeth Lee, having three children. The eldest of these is my mother.

Are you connected to Etheline's family?
