My name is Richard Broadhurst and have recently subscribed to this
list. I'm researching descendants of Richard BROADHURST (18855-1910)
and his wife Sarah Ann JONES (1861-1926). Richard and Sarah Ann were
farmers in Cheshire and many of their children left home and headed
into the cotton mills around Manchester.
Their eleven children were; Frances Mary, Jane Ann, Sarah, John "Jack"
Richard, Gertrude, Mary, Peter Ernest, Nellie, Violet, Percy and
William Arthur. Family names include ADAMS, ASPIN, BAILEY, BONE,
BRADSHAW, BROADHURST, CROSSLEY, DAVIS, HOWARTH and WOODWARD.
Of the eleven siblings all except two, Jane Ann and Mary "May" (married
BRADSHAW and later BONE) emigrated to the US in the early 1900s.
I'd appreciate hearing from anyone researching any of these
individuals, or perhaps from a "lost" cousin.
