Searching

I am looking for information about the following ancestors. Can you help?

GIBBONS, Alexander – son of Margaret Sharp and an unknown father. According to family, Alexander was born on 13 Jan 1853 in Auchterarder, Perthshire, Scotland. So far, I have been unable to find any record of his birth.  His marriage certificate states his father’s name as Alexander Gibbons whilst his death certificate says his father was John Gibbons.  The family story is that Alexander’s father was a wealthy lord – but I am not accepting any story without the “proper documentation”.

WILLIAMS, Charles – son of John Williams and Susannah Jones. Charles was born in 1853 in Wrexham, Denbighshire, Wales.  In the 1871 Census he was listed as living with his father John, his brothers Edwin and Samuel and his sister Sarah at 44 Thomson Street, Ardwick, Manchester with an occupation of Coach Painter. I don’t know what happened to him after his father died in 1872.
