George Wandless & Ann Lax moved to the Lumley-area tree

Moved the family of George Wandless & Ann Lax from the Strays tree into tree 35. Realized that Ann Lax Wandless was the Ann Wandless who married Thomas Turnbull, because their son William Turnbull b. 1824 appears as brother or brother-in-law to Ann’s daughter Ann (Wandless) Tate in the 1851 and 1861 census. His christening gives his mother as Ann Wandless. Realized that, for Ann Lax Wandless to remarry in 1820, George had to be dead by then, and therefore fit the burial we’d thought might be his, in 1819. That gave us his age, and the George born 1785 to Johnson & Ann is the only George that fits the right time and place.
