NOTE: On 6/14/2011, I posted this note on a public tree belonging to Robin Minton. "I am researching this person who is on my husbands Fisher line. Morris Robert Cotterell married 1st to Elizabeth Pitt in 1891. They had a son Francis Pitt Cotterell b. 1892. Elizabeth died 1892. Morris remarried to Alice Jones Nassif on 3 Jul 1894. She had already been married to ??Nassif and had a daughter Winifred Alice Millicent Nassif b.26 Apr 1893. We cannot find Winifred's father and her birth cert does not state father's name. On the 1911 census Morris is still married but Alice is not there. Alice shows up as Alice Fisher wife on the 1911 census with Charles Fisher, but cannot find a marriage. Her daughter Winifred Nassif is also with them. Alice possibly died before 1915 but we have found a death for her in 1934 and have the copy cert. Charles married her daughter Winifred Alice Millicent, who was using the surname Cotterell on postcards to Charles, or Nassif on her marriage to him 6 Jul 1915. Charles Fisher is my husband's gt uncle. His brother William Fisher was my husbands grandfather. Two ladies in Wales are daughters of Winifred & Charles Fisher. I do have a website at www.goodbytree.org with all my research. regards Georgina Goodby Fisher."
