red mail Cockcroft and the LEES family
My 3g-grandfather, Abraham LEES (1828-1915) was said to have been born in Cockcroft, Halifax Parish, Yorkshire, West Riding, England. I have managed to locate an old map showing Cockcroft in an area called Rishworth but am unsure if this is the same area. His daughter, Annie Lees, wrote a diary and mentions her grandfather being buried in "Rushworth Chappel" and I'm thinking that that might be "Rishworth Chapel". In addition, she copied an article from the Halifax Courier (1900 time frame) that follows: King Cross Remarkable Family Gathering An interesting gathering took place at the King Cross Liberal Club on Saturday, when about 80 relatives assembled to welcome their kinsman, Mr. Abraham Lees of Wahoo, Nebraska. Mr. Lees left this neighborhood for America more than 40 years ago and has prospered. Has a family of 7 children. All married and settled in homes of their own in America. To attend this gathering fo the clans, relatives came from Sheffield, Wakefield, Elland, Bradford, Ashton, under-line, Holywell Green, Sowerby Bridge, Siddal and Halifax. Two Patriarchs present at this remarkable gathering were Mr. George Sutcliffe, of Bradford "Uncle" to Mr. Lees, in his 93rd year and Mr. Thomas Taylor- Brother-in-law in his 89th year. Mr. Lees himself is 73 and four of his sisters who were also present range from 62 to 80 years of age. After partaking of a substantial tea, the rest of the evening was spent most enjoyably in singing and recitations and dancing until 11 p.m. = Anyone help in verifying any of these items would be greatly appreciated.
