I am awaiting a reply from a message I have sent to a lady who has same people in her tree on ancestry

MarieCeleste

MarieCeleste Report 7 Apr 2013 19:41

Right, I see - I was puzzled as to why you'd asked for help but if you've just upgraded it now makes sense.

Mark

Mark Report 7 Apr 2013 19:40

Yes I upgraded today...... thought it best as I have a lot of distant family abroad

MarieCeleste

MarieCeleste Report 7 Apr 2013 19:36

Mark - do you have worldwide Ancestry access?

Mark

Mark Report 7 Apr 2013 19:33

I haven't posted any of their names as living ...

MarieCeleste

MarieCeleste Report 7 Apr 2013 19:30

No, just curious because I didn't come across them.

Didn't realise you already had worldwide access.

Mark

Mark Report 7 Apr 2013 19:27

Just to confirm the birthdate (from LancsOPC)

Baptism: 4 May 1898 St John the Baptist, Atherton, Lancashire, England
Mary Barford - Daughter of Thomas Barford & Margaret Alice
Born: 22 Mar 1898
Abode: 133 Bolton Road

Baptised by: W. Nuttall, Vicar
Register: Baptisms 1884 - 1899, Page 263, Entry 2103

So the death record you found is your Mary. I can open the FindaGrave link but there's no info on it, other than birth and death dates.

No mention of Dorothy

MarieCeleste

MarieCeleste Report 7 Apr 2013 13:59

I'm puzzled as to why you thought she'd never married when, apart from the detail I posted above, the marriage is on FreeBMD:

Surname First name(s) Spouse District Vol Page
Marriages Mar 1922
Barford Mary Crompton Leigh 8c 269
CROMPTON Thomas Barford Leigh 8c 269

You can also find Dorothy's birth on there and that of a possible sister.
