Maureen, I just merged Thomas Leaver b. 18 March 1827 at Blackhouse Lane, Briercliffe (husband of Mary Ann Pace) and Thomas Leaver b. 1827 father of James Leaver b. 21 May 1858, Marsden Height, Marsden.

There is another Thomas Leaver b. 1827, husband of Ellen Unknown and son of James Leaver. Don’t merge the wrong person.
