Northumberland / Re: railway accident info please
« on: Monday 04 February 08 20:11 GMT (UK)  »
thanks everyone for your suggestions.
Have already tried Blacksheep and no go. Know newspapers would be good as I used to be a librarian!! I did try through the internet but couldn't find anything. Din't know about NEWSPLAN though. suppose was hoping some good soul was in area and could help - I am 200 miles away!  however i still have relatives in the area so will have to arrange a visit.
Will go into local library when i have a day off and talk to my library friend about contacting Newcastle.
Once again - thanks. I love puzzles like this!!

Northumberland / railway accident info please

I suspect i have found the death of my GG grandfather Thomas Charlton whom i have been stuck on for some time. I have a death certificate that states he died on 7 Sept 1871 in a railway accident in Newcastle area. He was a goods guard on the railway and died as a result of 'injuries sustained by railway trucks'. There was a coroners inquest on the 8th Set 1871. The N Archives  are unable to supply this at present so can anyone help? there was probably a report in the local paper -Evening Chronicle? I am hoping this will confirm his wifes name - Mary Ann and children whom I have details for. he was born in 1842 in percy main and 29 when he died.
i know of a book published by newcastle library - 'Signals to danger : railway accidents at Newcastle and in Northumberland 1851 - 1992. hope to see this soon.

Hi, Tom - have just joined Rootschat. i am descended from the Cooks of Clackmannan on my mothers side and have info back to john(e) Cook 1619 from your Adam 1721. My line goes forward from Adams brother Henry.

I also am looking at the Erskine family of Dunferline/carnock
