If anyone has access to the 1891 census for Wigan, could you please have a
look for William and Ellen Taylor in Pemberton, Wigan. Two daughters that I
know of for sure were Ada and Hilda, but there were more.
I would really appreciate this, but please no special trips just for me!
where our weather is supposed to turn around

I'm on my way to the FHC in a couple of hours. Will be happy to check
the St.Caths index for you.

Could SKS see if Harry S or F Hart is still at home at 33 Dorrington
Street, Everton with his siblings Samuel, Alfred, Jessie Ada, mother,
Margaret and step father William Blackwell at the time of the 1891
Any help appreciated.

I have a death certificate for my ggrandfather dated 1901 and it shows
two addresses. The handwriting is beautiful but, unfortunately,
not very legible. As near as I can make them out they are:
2 Truth Street and 33 Rootstock Lane, both in Wigan.
Only the "th" in the first address is clear. The first part is
probably three letters, so perhaps we are looking for "2 ---th Street".
The place of death is the first address. Could it be a
nursing home or hospital?
Any suggestions or other help will be gratefully received.

Since I have been away from the list, our subscriber total has risen to 906.
That's 906 subscribers on this list!!!
Jeepers what were you doing, Tom, recruiting people while you were watching
the list? <BIG GRIN>
Bye for now,
I am not going to mention any names as I don't want to embarrass someone for
what was probably an innocent mistake.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE do not send attachments, encrypted files, graphics
within a message and so on, I am sure you get my drift?
I downloaded a message tonight that took 5 minutes to download (not too long
I guess) that should have gone to the list. Fortunately, Rootsweb stepped
in and stopped it going to all of you. Unfortunately, as listowner, it came
to me (wish I had returned tomorrow now, sorry Tom I didn't mean that
<smile>) and when I tried to open it it froze up my computer. So I did the
usual CTL-ALT-DEL trick and was able to close the offending message down.
Then I tried to reply to it to let the sender know what had happened and ask
that it not be done again and you guessed it my computer froze again.
It got to the point where I couldn't read the message to get the e-mail
address to send a message to the person and so on. Eventually, I did and I
have written to the sender of this message.
I know, like I said, that this was probably a perfectly innocent mistake but
man, did it cause problems for me!
Anyway, got to go.
The file 1891CE~1.DOC opens ok but the Lancas~1.arj opens encrypted.
Thank you for all the effort and time you have put in to this project.
LAWSON AND ALLEN are my ggrandparents from Freckelton area.
Hi, I'm new. :)
I am looking for a William MARSHALL who was born around 1854. He married Elizabeth Margaret ? (born around 1861) in about 1892 and had two daughters: Margaret Elizabeth MARSHALL and Janet Dorothy MARSHALL, both of whom later immigrated to Canada. It is believed that Janet was born around 1895 in Southport, and that the family
moved to Liverpool later on.
William MARSHALL does not seem to be listed in the 1881 census of Southport. I do not know where to go from here. Janet married Hugh BLAKE in Canada, but he too was from Liverpool, and immigrated around 1912/3. I have no information on his parents. He was probably born in 1894.
I am glad to have joined the list!
Looking for: BLAKE, CODY, COEDY, FEWSTER, MARSHALL, MCLEAN, MCTAGGART, PAROBEC, WELLINGTON, WITIUK, WOYCIK
Can anyone tell me anything about the Maypole Colliery disaster in Wigan?
I was aware of it, and that it was a major accident but my slowly dying
brain has only just caught on that my ancestors were involved with the
local mining community at the time.
Any info, links etc gratefully appreciated.
Is there an incredibly kind soul out there who would be prepared to do a
look up for me at a LDS FHC? I cannot get to one, as I live in the middle
of Exmoor, my nearest is in Bristol, and it takes major planning and
organization to get to it, because I am disabled.
I am desperately trying to find the marriage of JAMES ELLISON (coal miner)
to BETSY (Elizabeth?) PETERS; they had their first child in 1908 (December)
so sometime before then, is all I know. They lived at Asherton Road,
Hindley, Wigan after their marriage. They were my grandparents, who died
long before I was born.
My undying gratitude to anyone who volunteers!
Thought that would get your interest peaked. *-)
I forgot to mention in my recent messages to the list that last Thursday,
while I was chatting on the 'phone to a friend, St. Catharines and other
parts of Southwestern Ontario plus parts of Pennsylvania, USA felt the
effects of an earthquake/tremor.
Apparently, the epicentre was in Sharon, PA and it was felt all the way up
to Toronto. It was recorded as a 5.2 - 5.4 and it was a pretty unnerving
experience, to say the least, especially when you're sat on the couch
(settee, sofa) and it shakes.
I know it's not genealogy, forgive me but in my boring life of pain and
doctors I thought this was some livelier news from me. <BIG GRIN>
Anyway, take care everyone, it's so good to be back.
PS: Please don't make this into a thread if you want to you can write to me
personally, OK? This really isn't a subject to be discussed on the list,
My thanks to everyone who gave me information on where to obtain marriage
Maybe getting a copy of his will get my ggf out of hibernation or at least
point me in the right direction.
