Jane Smith and Florence (Florrie) Barrett
« on: Thursday 03 May 12 22:28 BST (UK) »
In 1923 Jane and Florrie returned from their travels via New York heading for Leigh in Lancashire.
From then I have no idea what became of them.

Jane was the widow of Eldred Smith b 1879 son of Thomas Smith 1829 and Harriet (Calland) 1840 and Florrie was unmarried

They travelled with a friend Ernest J White b.1879 Leigh Lancs Who
 lived at 37 Vernon St. Pennington in Leigh in 1911

If anyone could tell me what became of them after 1923 .  I know that later they continued on their travels to Honolulu

Hoping someone can help me away from this Brick Wall

You have the information ,yes ,but any one trying to help you does not,
so where do they start,without the basic information,
place and date of birth ,



for instance I was looking here
St Mary the Virgin Leigh
9th of March 1870
Eldred Smith
son of Thomas and Harriet
abode Pennington,
father a cotton manufacturor

so  am I correct in assuming this is the Eldred you mentioned
Gunning County Down,Kneale Isle of Man,Riddle Tynemouth,Bibby Kendal/Bradford,Colenso Penzance/Barrow-in-Furness,Steele Corney Fell,Chapman Ely,Dawes Alfreton,Blamire Westmoreland and Ulverston

Ernest James White was a cashier


so possibly a person Eldred trusted as he is mentioned in his probate record
Gunning County Down,Kneale Isle of Man,Riddle Tynemouth,Bibby Kendal/Bradford,Colenso Penzance/Barrow-in-Furness,Steele Corney Fell,Chapman Ely,Dawes Alfreton,Blamire Westmoreland and Ulverston

Thanks for the details - from searching I see there was a previous thread that has Florence going to Canada in 1924
http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,470949.20.html

With a name like Smith, there are numerous possibilities of re-marriage or death for Jane - you would need a lot of time & patience to work through them. Sorry!
