    • Ezekiel Burgess HARNISH sates, in his WWI CEF Attestation papers that he is married; however, there is no know marriage record for an Ezekiel or a Burgess HARNISH. However, there is a 1914 marriage record for an Alfred HARNISH, whose mother's name is listed as as Marie ROBSON.

      Now:
      a. There are no known Alfred HARNISH's who could have married Viola JACKSON in 1914.
      b. There are no Alfred HARNISH's in the 1901 and/or 1911 censuses who could possibly be the man who marries Viola JACKSON.
      c. The date and place of birth, as well as his mother's name, all fit the known facts about Ezekiel Burgess HARNISH.
      d. Ezekiel Burgess HARNISH is killed in action in 1917, in France, and on 4 Jan 1921, his (who states she isa wodw), marries Clarence STOUTLEY.

      So I think that there is simply a mistake in the civil marriage register and that Alfred and Ezekiel HARNISH are the same person. [Bob H]
