red mail Joseph Riddle Smith and Elizabeth Milburn
Joseph Riddle Smith, was born at Mitford in 1844 to Henry and Margaret SMITH (Margaret was nee RIDDLE, also sometimes spelt Riddel). He married Elizabeth MILBURN on May the 7th 1884 at ASHINGTON. He and his bride both lived at Ashington Colliery, and Joseph, his father Henry, and Margaret's father Thomas MILBURN were all pitmen. Joseph was a 39 year old batchelor, and Elizabeth a 37 year old spinster. As far as we know there are no living descendants of the couple, and so far we haven't found any sign of them having had children. Would like to hear from anyone who recognises the surnames Milburn-or Riddle, or perhaps knows that there were/are descendants.

Other children included Luke, my great granda, who moved soon after 1901 to Murton, Shiremoor, and Sydney. Anybody know anything about them?
