Janie and Wilfred were brother & sister. Janie married Dick Maddern and had a daughter, Belle. Janie later married Sam Slaughter who I remember as my Great Grand'ad. Belle married John Clare Jenkins and had a daughter, Melba, best known as Melba Lucas. Belle later married Bill Hayward and that's how she's best remembered. Wilfred married 'Alice' and had a son, Reggie. Wilfred later married Norah Harvey who had 3 children, Susan, Billie & Tommy. Melba married Frank (Tony) Lucas and had 3 children, Glynne, Yvette & Bonnie. And that's how the Phillips's, Harvey's, Lucas's and Jenkins's are all related.

I'll try to add to this page if I can get more info. from 'Uncle' Reggie.
