John Jabez Daubney Pask

This information relates to the main Lincolnshire tree - descendants of Johannis [John] & Elizabeth Pask née Archer, who lived in Lincolnshire.

This week my brother Kelvin went on a business trip to Alexandria, Egypt. He kindly agreed to visit a war grave there. He took numerous photographs. The cemetery is currently under renovation - they are replacing the grass. The photographs below show other parts of the cemetery, and the Egyptian gardener who lovingly cares for the cemetery. There are several other photographs available in the John Jabez Daubney Pask album, available in Picasa web albums.

J.J.D. Pask, was John Jabez Daubney Pask. He was born in 1879 in North Kyme, Lincolnshire, the son of Edward & Jane Pask née Daubney. He married Sarah Elizabeth Gash on 1 November 1906. They had five children. John was killed in action on 1 November 1917. Information on this family was originally provided in 2004 by Joanne Kirby.
