To Jessica,

I am replying to your query for a lost person, which I saw on the Britain-Burma Society's Lost Relatives web page (http://shwepla.net/Misspers.mv). You said:

I am trying to locate Gladys Edith May Cooper. My great grandfather

Joseph Plato Cooper is listed as her father on her marriage

certificate to James Raphael Senneville Desaubin (also listed as

Seuville James Desaubin on other documents) May 28th 1923 in Bombay,

India. James was from the Seychelles.If the marriage certificate is

correct she is my grandmother Audrey Phoebe Cooper's half sister but

we have no record of who her mother was or what happened to her

after she married James.

My great grandfather Joseph lived in Myanmar. Gladys would have been

born around 1898 and I know that Joseph was in Yangon in 1892 as his

Freemason records show this. He worked for the railway though so he

may have traveled away from Yangon.In 1904 he was in Pakistan as he

married my great grandmother there but some time between 1905 and

1908 he moved back to Myanmar.

I have gathered some additional information about their family here:



Maybe I can help a bit.
