Arthur Press
Looking for information about Arthur Press and descendants. He came from Down in Ireland and married Elizabeth Sleeth in 1894. Both their sons died in infancy but their daughter Mary Ellen Press married John McCumiskey in 1915 and they had daughters Elizabeth and Mary. Arthur and Elizabeth also had a daughter Rose Ann (b 1903). Arthur himself left his family in Workington and headed for Lanarkshire where he had two brothers. He died in hospital in Coatbridge in 1929, with his usual residence being the Lamont Model Lodging House (a type of work house). He used the alias of Edward Morgan, possible the name of his maternal grandfather.

red mail My relation Miebach and the Cumberland Hotel
Hi Everyone One of my relation Johann Peter Miebach in the late 1800's/early 1900's owned the Cumberland Hotel then called the Commercial Hotel. I'm looking for any more info on his family at the time and also any photographs that might exist of the man. He was quite a prominent member of the community so I'm hoping some photos will exist. He eventually ended his life living at 35 Highfield, Banklands during the late 1910's and early 1920's. He died 30th Oct 1922. He came from Germany but was a naturalized British subject.
