John William Duckworth after 1891
« on: Sunday 04 October 20 21:51 BST (UK) »
Hi, I have an ancestor called John William Duckworth. He was the son of John and Sarah Duckworth nee Jackson. I have his birth certificate, he was born on 13th Jan 1871 in Oldham. I have him on the census - living with John and Sarah but listed as being 2 years old at 24 Edge Lane Road, Oldham.

In the 1881 Census John W is at 5 Melrose Street in Oldham and liste as being 12. The final record I have for him is on the 1891 Census. On this he is aged 20, living with his parents and sister Elizabeth at 163 Littlemoor Lane, Oldham.

I cannot locate any other information on him or on where he went after the 1891 Census.

Please could anyone find anything further please?

Many thanks, Luke

Does it really say she was divorced as per transcript? :o

Great work jonw65, it doesnt look like an M or an S so maybe it is divorced. I wonder when he moved.
Thank you jonw65!

Hi
Good luck with him. I have just noticed that Winona died in 1902, aged only 27
Death entry here
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:S3HT-DCV4-W94?i=247

Typhoid fever
A report of the funeral in the Lowell Sun, 2 Sep 1902
I don't have access, but if the OCR text transcript is correct then Winona was buried at Edson Cemetery.

Feel sorry for her, all very sad
John

The death record lists her as married - maybe she was still with John. It isnt a good end for her is it.
