    I thought that I had found the above born 1842 in the 1866 burial at Breage age 22 address Trewavas, Breage, Helston, Cornwall but I think that I am wrong. The age is a little out.
    Today I found a Breage marriage of Elizabeth Ann Beckerleg whose father is William and she married James Jenkin Rowe in 1865.How can be sure that she is the daughter of William Beckerleg and Margaret James and that Elizabeth Ann Beckerleg that died isn't ?
    If Beckerleg/Rowe is correct who is the Elizabeth Ann that died in 1866.
    Would like help to find out.

    Looks like you have 2 likely candidates. 1861 census records show an Elizabeth Ann, aged 18, daughter of William & Margaret BECKERLEG living at Trewithick (RG9/1574, folio 100, page 19) and an Elizabeth A BECKERLEG, 17, Tin Dresser, shown as the niece of James BECKERLEG living at Rinsey (RG9/1574, folio 124, page 35).

    1851 census of Breage (HO107/1913, folio 352, page 16) shows Elizabeth BECKERLEG, 7, Scholar, living with parents John & Mary BECKERLEG, he being a Tin Miner, at Ashton.

    So, given that the Elizabeth BECKERLEG who married James ROWE states her father is William, looks like the burial record could refer to the Elizabeth in the 1851 census whose father is shown as John.

    I think that you may be right.
    James Beckerleg's wife Maria died in 1861 and I wonder if Elizabeth Ann was sent to help in 1861. James daughter Maria died in April 1863 and James died November 1863.I think that Richard a son of James died in Germoe September 1863 age 13. Richard was born in 1850.

    Back to the drawing board with her.
    I found information on familysearch and there is a grave for said couple and Elizabeth's parents are William Kelynack and she had 3 brothers - James Henry,
    Alfred and Thomas.
    Burial at
    Old Elm Ridge Cemetery
    Grass Valley, Nevada County, California, USA.
    So what happened to Elizabeth Ann Beckerleg whose parents were William and Margaret.
    This Beckerleg family is making me dizzy.

    I am still trying to make sense of this person and unless a death appears with the mother's name it shall remain a mystery.
    Both have James Jenkin Rowe as a husband.

    I believe that Elizabeth Ann the daughter of William and Margaret did marry James Jenkins Rowe because her address on freecen 1861 was Trewithick,Breage , as it is on the marriage document.
    Johanna is living at Ashton,Breage , with her daughter Elizabeth J.So I think that Elizabeth J was incorrect although her father was also William.
    It is a pity that there isn't an actual death certificate of Elizabeth A with her parents name on it.
    can't find them emigrating yet.

    Have you not found those in USA on 1881 census? or were they still in UK? I'm not top hand at reading through things just yet so may have missed something.
