« on: Friday 10 November 17 23:40 GMT (UK) »
Im looking for my GG grandma Sarah Jones. She was born in Montgomeryshire,Wales in 1830.  She married a James Brierley in 1852 in England.  But I cannot find her parents or other family, so the line stops with her. Help!!   Thank you

Welcome to Rootschat.

Do you have the marriage certificate as that will give her father's name and occupation which may help?

Robert.             SON u 7 scholar  Heywood
Samuel              SON u 3.            Rochdale

Would seem John Brierley and John Jones are same age so same person?
