My Great Uncle William Edward Burnett was b. 13 Aug 1862; Ryde, Isle of Wight, England. By 1891 he had married Hannah Jones and the couple worked as missionaries in China where William died in Tiontian at the age of 88 years and Hannah died aged 83 in Shanghai. They had 3 children, Gertrude Marie (b.1888; m. we believe, Douglas J Marshall) Beni C (b.c.1890 who we believe became an Architect distinguished in China, Japan and Australia; m. Florence M Draper-Bentley in 1914; d. Alice Springs, Australia 1955) and Basil B (b. Malvern, Worcs, England 1890). We also believe Beni had 2 sons, John and Angus, and we believe John died in Clackmannanshire Scotland in 2005.
Can anybody confirm marriages of WE's children and provide any more information.
