MILDRED BERTHA HILLIAM born 1886 - Looking for any relatives
« on: Sunday 11 September 16 20:17 BST (UK) »
Hello,

I am looking into my family tree and would love to find out more about my great grandmother Mildred Hilliam.  I know that she was born in 1886 of Sarah and John Hilliam and had a number of siblings, Eunice, William, Nellie, Alice and Jennie.

She married my great grandfather, George Middleton in 1913 in Church Stretton and they went on to have three boys.

She sadly died in 1921 in a car accident and is buried in Birmingham.

I'd love to know if there is anyone out there who may know anything about her or even better, have photos perhaps?!

If anyone knows anything I would be most grateful.

If you haven't already done so, a good way to make surname connections with other members is to enter your surname interests in the Surname Interests Table (SIT), and to check there whether others are researching these names. 

This can be found at http://surname.rootschat.com/ , there is a link to it under "Your Tools" at the bottom of each Rootschat page.

The more people who enter their surnames, the more chance there will be of making a connection!

It may have bee reported on in the press local to where the accident occurred. Back issues of B'ham papers are held at B'ham library (digitalised).
There may have been a photo.
