I am searching for decendants of Eliza Day born 1853 in Lincolnshire. The 1911 census finds her living at 16 Church Street, Ilkley, West Yorkshire and running a sweet business at the premises, now The Prince Albert Pub. Also living there was her daughter Lily and husband William Weedon, two sons William and Arthur I have brought the search forward to her Gt.Gt.Grandson Anthony Towers born 1959.

Have you looked to see if anyone on here has any of these people in their trees?

Added:
2 people seem to have Anthony, 1959.

Not sure what you're actually asking.

Which line is Anthony Towers from?

If you found his line, you should be able to find the lines of the other offspring.

As far as can be deduced, Lily was her only child so you've got Eliza's descendants

One would hope that was the case, as Eliza was unmarried
