Shadrach Hall

I cannot find Shadrack/Shadrach Hall after his Baptism in Duffield in 1806. His father was Patrick Hall (Schoolmaster) Mother Sarah Hall died 1816. He has just disappeared. I have found another Shadrach Hall but he was born in Staffordshire about 1810 so not that one. His father was a convict in 1829 sent to Tasmania. Any help much appreciated.

Boylan Deaths

I have found newspaper announcements for the death of two daughters of Henry Dillon Boylan, my GG grandfather. Eva Boylan on 5th March 1878 (can't find her birth) and Ada Augusta Harriet Boylan (age 26) on 12th October 1878. Both deaths where at 149 Rue de Paris, Pantin near Paris.

I thought this very strange as they died only 7 months apart and at a young age. Can anyone point me in the right direction ...
