Hi Beverley,

Its so very kind of you to do all this in Avis' memory, I am so grateful.
By all means tell Helen when you see her about me and this site. I would be very pleased to hear from her, as while I can fill in Avis' younger days, she could tell me how life was for her Mum in Appledore.

If Jill is like her Mum then she must be like her Grandmother, as Avis was the image of her mother.

When the sun finally shines and the weather is a lot warmer than it is now, I will let you know when I intend to come down to Appledore. Difficulty is putting contact details on this site, but I am the Hon.Sec. of North West Kent Family History Society, and if you or Helen wish to find me, then go to this site and contact details will be able to find me.

Thanks again for all you have done.
Kind regards
Vera

Hello Beverley
How sad but thanks for letting me know. It must have been a very traumatic time for their daughters (as far as I am aware there were 2 - Helen & Jill). I had not seen Avis since the Helen was a toddler & Jill a baby, but thought now I live just outside Maidstone it would have been nice to be in contact, but sadly it was not to be. We were very close mates in our teens but time & marriages parted us, me to Dartford & Avis to Appledore. I have carried very fond memories of Avis over the years, she was such a kind & caring person. Are they buried in your parish churchyard? Thought if they were I could visit one day & pay my respects. I don't think Helen would know me, as she was a toddler & her sister a baby when we last meet at their home in Appledore.
Thanks again for letting me know even if the news is heartbreaking.
Kind regards - Vera

I am looking for Avis Cornelius whose single name was Devonshire. As far as I am aware Avis married a Trevor Cornelius and lived in Appledore. Avis & I were mates when we were teenagers and both lived in Abbey Wood London SE2 at the time. Lots of water has passed under the bridge since that time and I hope life has been kind to her over the years. Any info would be appreciated.
Regards -Vera Bailey nee Webb
