Wheatleys / Holyheads / Slaters / Spittles / Butlers  Jan 2007 (102873)
My Gt X 3 Grandfather William Wheatley was born in Wednesbury in 1795. His daughter -in-law Leah Spittle and her parents Samuel Spittle and Sarah Butler were also from Wednesbury. My Gt grandmother Mary Ann Holyhead was born in Kingshill, Wednesbury and also her parents John Holyhead and Susanna Slater. They were all in mining or the Iron trade I would love to receive some more information about them and to contact anyone with the same line of ancestory.
I am looking for decendants/ancestors of the above families. Jabez Lawton b.1852 was my Great, Grandfather. He married Martha Willetts b.1852 on the 18th August, 1872, at the Parish Church, Moxley. They had 3 children, Samuel b.1874, George b.1876 (my grandfather) and Martha b.1878. Very tragically Martha, their mother, died 3 days after giving birth to baby Martha. Jabez re-married in 1885. His wife was Ann M Brighton. They married at St. Barts. Church, Wednesbury. I believe that Ann died about 1889, as on the 1891 Census, it states Jabez as being a widower. Any info. on any of these three families would be much appreciated. Many thanks - hoping to hear from you.
Arm- Cook  Jul 2006 (85323)
I am tracing my Family Tree and researching my mother's family. I have discovered that my Grandmother Mary Jane, was born out of wedlock. She was born on the 15th December, 1879 and her mothers name was Mary Arm, but there was no father listed. However, on Mary Jane's marriage certificate of 1899 she names her father as being John Cook. I think I have traced John on the 1881 Census, as his addres is only a couple of streets away from where Mary Arm lived, and he is the only John Cook listed in the area, plus he is the right age. His mother was Selena Cook a widow, aged 48 years. Her childen were listed as: John aged 25 - Coal Miner. Samuel aged 17 - Coal Miner Walter Cook - Laborer. Harriett aged 11 - scholar. George aged 6 - scholar. Hoping someone may be able to help me piece a bit more of my Family Tree 'jigsaw' together.
