List of Brick Walls:
Thomas Holmes and Mary Jackson - ( 3rd great grandparents ) looking for parents of Thomas and Mary, they were married on 25 Nov 1819, in Tamworth, Stafford, England, they had five children: Marian Holmes, Jessey Margaret Holmes, Jane W. Holmes, Valentine Webb Holmes and Charles Appleby Holmes, Charles being my 2nd great grandparent.
May Wright - ( great grandmother ) looking for her parents, May supposedly had an affair with Thomas William Henry Holmes around the 1920s and had my grandmother Boronia May Dawn Holmes. May Wright likely died from childbirth at Moira Private Hospital in Sandringham, Victoria, Australia. Unfortunately Moira Private Hospital is long gone, and there are no records to be found or if ever recorded during the 1920s or around 1927. My grandmother Dawn was born on 10 Aug 1927 and died on 10 Jul 2016. There are records on Ancestry.com listing the mother's name for my grandmother, but that was just her guess on her mother's name.
The closest that I've found that could maybe relate, is a record on Ancestry.com of a May D Wright, who departed from London, England on 09 Oct 1923 to Sydney, Australia on a ship named Jervis Bay at age around 24. And the closest guess on the possible mother for 'May D Wright' is name Elizabeth who was born about 1867 in Scarborough, Yorkshire, England, but no listing of the father that I can find.

Sarah Ann Upton's and Charles Upton's Parents - Sarah and Charles are siblings. The only confusing part is the name of the father for Sarah and Charles. Charles was supposedly born in England on 25 Dec 1846 and immigrated to New York in 1848, and lived and died in Ohio according to his death record, and listing his father as Daniel Upton with mother unknown as shown below.
Sarah Ann Upton my 3rd great grandmother, born on 05 Apr 1830, in New York, died on 06 Dec 1913, in Prairieville, Barry, MI, and listing her father on her death record as Henry Upton and with mother unknown as shown below.
I found Sarah's death record here: at SeekingMichigan.org
Though I might have found the possible grandparents for Sarah and Charles. William Upton and wife with surname Norton? William born in 1770 and died 1862, possibly died in Ohio. Parents of William are Edward Upton and Eleanor Osborn.
Jonathan Henry and Elizabeth Hassinger - ( 3rd great grandparents ) looking for Jonathan's parents, Jonathan was born on 30 Jun 1811, died on 10 Apr 1896, in Mifflin Co., Penn. I found possible parents, Jacob Henry / Henrich and Nancy Landis who are probably from Germany.
Possible siblings for Jonathan: William Henry who married Elizabeth McDowell ; John Henry who married Catherine Springer and married secondly an unknown spouse who had a daughter ; Elizabeth Henry who married Phillip Wagner and had Phillip Wagner jr. ; ( very probable ) Jacob Henry born in 1805 died in 1864 who married Mariah Wagner and had 11 children
Ancestry for Jonathan probably Irish, German or Scottish?
Jacob Grove and Elizabeth Newhart or Neyhart? - ( 5th great grandparents ) looking for parents for both Jacob and Elizabeth, they had a son Samuel Grove born in about 1811 and died on 01 Sep 1873, married three times: Elizabeth Kessler and had four children ; married to Sarah Gutelius and had three children and married Susan Elbert with no children
