Hi, I have searched for my great grandmother for about five years with no luck. Her name was Ellen Abbot on the 1881 census aged 23 born in Little Dawley, Shropshire. Later that year she married my great grandfather Robert Agar. But I cannot find any sign of her prior to that date.
On succeeding census forms she states she was born in Madeley, Ironbridge and Dawley. On her marriage certificate her father is given as James Abbot. Apparently she always told family that she was born in Little Dawley and went into service aged 9 years. There was some connection to Broseley where a relative 'worked in a china factory'(?) and we had some plates supposedly made by that peron or sent from that person.
My assumption is that either she was illegitimate and took her stepfathers name when her mother married; or her natural father died and she took stepfathers name. Or even that her employers didn't like the forename she came with and changed it. I have searched for Ellen without a surname and Abbot without a forename plus numerous variatons of 'Abbot' and 'Ellen'.
Anyone have an ideas?
I'm looking for any info on the Petee family. Mary Petee (Brown) was my great great grandmother. Her mother was Angelina Lagarde and father was John Petee. I don't know who her grandparents were and would really like to know what I can about her parents and grandparents. Her brothers were Noah and George. I'm curious as to who March was that is listed in the Census books with her when she was 17. Was that possibly her child and what happened to that child for I can't find any info after that in the Census?
I am a descendant of Thomas James Dugmore, b. 1845 in Harborne, Staffordshire, England, m. Hannah Elizabeth Warwick, b. 1856 in Moseley, Warwickshire, England. I am looking for a book about the Dugmore line entitled "Descendants of William Warwick (1746-1817), Nailmaker of Harborne" (England, privately printed, 2001, 94 pages.) The author is Bill Lyden. This book was used as a source on Family Search in relationship to my Dugmore ancestors, but there is no information as to how to find or purchase the book. I am hoping someone can help me with this.
I am a Swedish writer since many years and I am currently prepering my next book. It is a book about the Swedish migration 18-1920 and will take two perspectives.
First, the life of a family who stayed in the Swedish village Falun when their close to all their neighbours emigrated in 1850-75.
Second, the life of an emigrated family in US. How they experienced the life and how it was to raise a family in the New Country.
The family/ies I am in contact with in Swedish Falun know that a large group of Swedes moved to Arizona. This has been confirmed by Lars Ogerman at the Swedish Consulate in Pheonix. He directed me to this forum.
I wonder if anyone has any clues or input on this subject.
If you would like to know more about me or find my private contact details, visit my website.
