Amy Dawson/Barbaro

Further confirmation of Amy Dawson from April :

I think you have heard from a fellow-researcher (Margaret Fay) the news below - but if not, here it is. It certainly is the last bit of the jig-saw which confirms that Amy Dawson became Amy Barbaro. Her father died on 14 April 1904 and one of the people awarded probate was his other daughter - Edith Gertrude Dawson b. abt 1874 - she was unmarried and living on her own in Newcastle-upon-Tyne in 1911 census but there is no indication that she was also an artist (their father's personal effects when he died was abt £200,000 in today's money). - best wishes, April
Newcastle Courant dated Saturday 1st January 1898. It states marriage on the 10th instant, (must mean Dec 1897) at the Municipality Rome and church of Ss. Vincenso & Anastasio, Amy daughter of Edward Dawson of Whitley to Giovanni son of Dona Maria and the late Don Leopoldo Barbaro of Amalfi, Italy.
