Upson
« on: Sunday 13 March 05 22:29 GMT (UK) »
I am in the process of collecting information on the surname Upson. My grandmother was Elizabeth Upson born Brentwood, Essex in 1887. I have got BMD from 1837 to 1900, as well as Census information. If you have any Upson info, please do contact me. Thanks Liz ;)

Hi Liz

Would you like me to move this thread to the surname interests board for surnames T to Z?  You may get a better response there.  Its up to you of course.  Let me know if you do.

Best wishes

Glad to have found you, Liz.  I have just discovered Rootschat.com.  We corresponded briefly on email in  2003 and I wrote again in 2004 but I must have wrongly addressed it.  Unfortunately I am not much further along with my research but we are travelling from Melbourne, Australia and will be in Ubbeston, Suffolk, next week (14th/15th July) and plan to dig as deep as I can as quickly as I can!  If you care to be in touch re the Upsons I would be happy to share information. Do we do that via this forum, or via email?
Hope all is well with you and yours.

Kathy Richards.

I'm Posting this as a reference to my Grandfather who passed away a few years back, but it gives you an idea of where his family ended up. He had several siblings and many grand children. And of course my great grand parents were Leonard and Dorothy Upson. I don't know a whole lot about this, however my Aunt recently posted on facebook about being from the area where you have referenced (Ubbeston, Suffolk). So I figured this might be of some use.

Yakima Washington - In loving memory of Jerry Dobert Upson who passed away at Memorial Hospital in Yakima on July 7, 2006 after a short illness.

Jerry was born in Ava, Missouri on September 14, 1933 to Leonard and Dorothy Upson. As a young boy Jerry worked alongside his father cutting mining props in Wyoming, Utah and Montana. In 1945 his family moved to Selah. He attended school in Selah and also worked alongside his parents in the orchards. At age 18 he went to work for the Southern Pacific Railroad. During that time, in 1954, he met and married the love of his life, Kathleen Hess

Hi Matthew

Hi Liz,

I have traced my wife's grandmother as being Annie Upson, born c.1880 in (according to the certificate of her marriage to Samuel Saunders) Brentwood.  Does this name appear in your tree anywhere, as the dates suggest she might have been a sister of your Grandmother ?

Just checking up on some loose ends !!
