Just been reading through this tonight & what a shock ending.

I hope the woman is ok?

This is such a strange coincidence in genealogical terms.

It was on BBC News just before the fire caught hold;

Pretty sad to hear of the chalet - I had high hopes of stopping over there for a quick holiday and to do some research in the area - I read in the news the lady in question took in injured birds so that in itself is a sad loss to the area as well - a dog was lost never to be found and the poor woman in question was sofa surfing for a fair while - so I sincerely hope a home has been found for her now and "yus" how strange for history to have repeated itself - it was with interest to know how the farm itself burned down and now the redeeming curse that seems to take itself over to the chalet too - may I say a heartfelt to all that have given me so much information in regard of Delachule and about my family too - kind regards Indiana Shaw x
