The Lighter Side / Re: ancestral home
« on: Thursday 06 September 18 14:32 BST (UK)  »
I have just come across your posts on 'Ancestral Home'.  It took my attention because I was also looking for Crawshaw Fold in Crumpsall.  Although none of the Christian names match with your family, my Scholes family also lived in Crawshaw Fold in the 1880s.  I'm sure they must have been related in some way.  My 3rd great-grandfather was Edward married to Betty.  Their son was Edward Richard married to Mary Hazeldine and their son was also Edward.  My 2nd great-grandfather was another son Edwin married to Mary Hazeldine.
If you are still on Roots, is there a connection?

Since my last post on this topic I have researched William's naval record.  I found a William McMullen involved in the Boxer rebellion and that he landed in China during the Boxer Rebellion on ship named HMS Marathon transferred in 1902 to Duke of Wellington. Regimental No 285846
Medal No 6584 HMS Goliath Reg No 182886

This could be him or I like the other suggestion from someone that he may have never married and became a priest.  I have a wedding photograph of a nephew and it has 2 priests amongst the guests.  I don't know where to start researching that!!

Laois (Queens) / White/Kelly/Mather which one is my great-grandmother
« on: Thursday 22 February 18 12:31 GMT (UK)  »
As some of you will know I've had many attempts at trying to find my great-grandmother Sarah Kelly. She was born in Queens County in 1853, I know this because I have her marriage certificate in England when she married William Mather in 1873 and this also shows her father as Michael Kelly.  I still occasionally go back to my notes to review the links and ideas I've had to find her in Ireland but because the name is so common I've never had any luck.
I recently found a record for Raheen | Microfilm 04202 / 01  Ballinagar Diocese Kildare and Leighlin showing a Catholic baptism for 5 June 1857 birth of Sarah to Essy White and Michael Kelly.  I have seen this name before but have still been unable to make a link that I have the right Sarah.
I had seen a previous post regarding the White family but no mention of an Essy.  I wonder if anyone interested in the White's know this name?
Any help appreciated.

Thanks very much to all contributors, grateful for all your help.  It looks like she never married again.

Lancashire Lookup Requests / Edith Elizabeth Jones McMullen
« on: Tuesday 17 October 17 13:49 BST (UK)  »
Could anyone help me pin down the right person.  I'm looking for the wife of my great-uncle John Edward McMullen Jnr b.1900 d.1938. I know his wife was Edith Elizabeth Jones and I have a possible marriage in 1929 in Ormskirk and they had 2 children Phyllis and David Joseph.  They lived in Akrington, Middleton, Manchester. When JEMcM died I have a probate leaving everything to Edith and their son David Joseph Jones, Chartered Accountant.  I'm not sure where she was born as there many Edith Elizabeth Jones and I don't know her date of birth.  I'd like to know what happened to her when she was widowed young.  Did she remarry?
Any help appreciated.

Wow, thanks so much Mo, I hadn't thought of looking at Elizabeth's family, I was just looking for the connection to Sarah Kelly.

I'm going back to this long-ago post about my great-grandparents Mather and Kelly of Upper Baxter Street, Hulme.  I had dropped it, unable to get any further with that line but yesterday I found another member of the family, William Mather's brother-in-law Robert Peel who was marrying William's sister Elizabeth and found his address on marriage was - yet again - 50 Baxter Street, Hulme.  I find this a mystery!!  Maybe this address was a lodging house.  The Peels got married at Holy Trinity, Hulme so unlike William and Sarah they weren't at that address because they wanted to get married at the Cathedral.
Any more ideas?

I have another generation of Freels - Thomas Freel b.1884 married Frances Ruth Waterhouse and they had 4 children.  I know one of them Harry died in New York and the other 3 are still here.  I have a death record for one in 2004 so I'm not too far back now.

Yes, you are right, it wouldn't have been JB as he was dead by then.  It is strange about the Freel family some seemed to go to US and Canada but others stayed at home.  Who knows ......
