Shackleton Family - Cragg Vale, Yorkshire

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

Lynn Report 30 Jan 2014 20:03

Hi. I am trying to see if there are any relatives out there of Hannah Shackleton (married name Walton) who was born around 1840 in Cragg and who was my G x 2 Grandmother on my Dad's side. I believe it is a well established name around there. Her Father was originally from Todmorden and was, I believe, called John. I have now moved to Yorkshire and it would be lovely if anyone had any connection.

Thanks

Lynn Allen :-)

It would take far too long to bring each individual member of family, forward to today so see if any of them are still living in the same area.

However, you could try putting the names of some of the members of family in Search Trees to see if you can find a connection. You may find a descendant who is a member so you can make contact with them.

If Hannah was your G x2 Grandmother then I presume you are following more the Walton name, is that correct?
