red mail Looking for connection between surnames Snape and Geddes
I am puzzled about the wife of Ensign Charles Ewart. In various sources her name is given as Margaret Geddes, but in 1812 he married Margaret Snape in Manchester, and I don't believe he married twice. She died in 1856 and was buried in Flixton. The following is from a book published in 1898: 'Sergt. Ewart's wife, who bravely went through the campaigns with her husband, is buried in Flixton Churchyard, at the east end. The following is inscribed at the foot of a gravestone of the Geddes family : " Also, Margaret, relict of Ensign Ewart late of the Scots Greys, who died August 26, 1856, aged 72 years."' Can anybody throw any light on this, please?
red mail John Alker
I'm looking for info on the ex-servicemans club. Why did John Alker dedicate this building to ex-servicemen - did one of his sons fight in WW1? What became of his son, John Alker Junior (b.1879)? I have him on the 1911 census but lose track of him from there.

red mail Talbot , upton
Talbot - George Vernon Daniel Talbot Ashton-in-Makerfield looking for any information on the family my Grandfather George Vernon Daniel Talbot. I belive he was born in Goven Lanarkshire 24th July 1894 but was raised in Ashton In Makerfield. The nameGeorge Vernon Daniel Talbot is from the birth records in the Scotish PRO, but on his childrens birth certificates he is named as George Daniel Vernon Talbot. This may be an error on the original records in Scotland. His father was William Vernon Talbot and his mother was Alice Maud Upton. They were married in the parish of Flixton Lancs on 9th June 1892. Siblings - Daisy b 1897-96 - Matthew b 1897 - 96 - Alice M b 1899 If anybody has any further information they would like to share I would be very greatful. I can supply quite alot of information about his desendents.
