    • Although the marriage and death records of John's second wife give her the first name Diana/Dina, it seems quite possible that this was to cover the fact that John married his deceased wife's sister. The 1901 census shows John's second wife as Kate Hamley, aged 38, born in Rotherham - this profile matches that of his sister-in-law, Kate Simpson. No record of a Diana Simpson born in the Rotherham area in about 1862 has yet been found, nor is there a match for Diana in the 1891 census, when a 28 year old Kate Simpson was living unmarried with her parents.
