    Emily Slater is the mother of Gustav Charles Senger to husband Gustave Charles Senger. Their marriage certificate dated 22-Dec-1901 lists her age as 34, a widow  and living at 49 Cruickshank Road (see MC). Gustave Charles Senger is listed as a batchelor of 32 and at the same address and a River side labourer (On BC of son Gustav in 1905 he lists himself as Stevedore labourer). To date there is no trace of Gustave in England in census or BMD records. The 1901 census shows Emily Slater age 34 living at 49 Cruickshank Road in a household, head Albert Wright, her brother-in-law (see 1901 census image). In the house as a visitor at the same time is Augustus Sanger of 32 and a Stevedore Dock Labourer. It is almost certainly a mis-read for Gustave Senger. He i lited a born in America and an American subject
  • Origin Unknown.

    The first record of Gustave Charles in England is his marriage to the widow Emily Slater (nee Watson) in December 1901. See notes on Emily Watson for almost certain identification of mis-entered Augustus Sanger in 1901 census.
  • Date of birth (1869) is deduced from age at marriage (32) in 1901 and age at death 41 in 1910.

    This person seems to be same as the Gustav Saenger age 13 listed as living in New York in 1880 census
