Completed !! The Davies of Loughborough Bible reunited
« on: Thursday 14 February 13 13:06 GMT (UK) »
I'm finally admitting defeat :-\

I bought this bible in a second hand bookshop in Coventry.  I have been trying to locate descendants of the original family but they appear to have all died out or possibly emigrated. I would appreciate any help in locating any direct or indirect descendant so that I may return it to the family if at all possible.

What I know of the family is here: http://loughborodavies.tribalpages.com

Hi I think I may be a relative??

My mum still lives in Loughborough the family name morphed from Davies to Davis but in living memory.

I have a family tree on ancestry.co.uk which is public. Richard Davies !836 was my great grandfather.
He died in the workhouse in Loughborough but his son Reuben became a site manager for William Mosses.

Let me know if it sounds right or if you would like some more information. I would love to see any information contained in the bible. As Reuben was a builder he moved around the country and travelled light we have precious little record of the family history.

Hope to hear from you,

ps my tree name is rachprice1
