Shropshire Lookup Requests / Re: 1841/1851 request updated

Hi Wendy - My Great Great Grandmother was Eliza Davies! I've been working on this part of my family tree for some time - I especially feel close to Eliza as I can remember my grandma talking about going to visit her at Meadowtown and also spending a lot of time looking for Meadowtown hill whcih had a ring of trees on the top of it when I was a child on holiday with my grandma in Shropshire. I have discovered that she married Samuel Gardner March 19th 1856 - Samuel Gardner was a lead miner and was killed in 1863 when he fell down a mine shaft at White Grit Mine. My Great Grandmother (Esther Gardner) was born in January 1864. Eliza went on to marry Benjamin Wardman in 1867 and after his death Richard Ellis in 1889.
She had a whole bunch of children and stepchildren and even ended up adopting one! I have information from several census sources and copies of various birth, marriage, death certificates - you say that Eliza was your GGG grandmother who were your GG grandmother/father? Hope to hear from you soon - Judy
