Hello there, I'm trying to find out a bit more about my great grandparents. His name was ISAAC BATEMAN. He married an HELEN EAST. They had 6 kids: Ada, May, Daisy, Rose, Bert and Frank. They all lived in Shenstone, Staffs. Rose Bateman was my grandmother. My mum's name is Margaret. I would like to know anything at all, like dates of birth, place of birth, what they did for a living, etc; I would particularly like to find out more about HELEN EAST and where she came from. Any information will be gratefully received. Best wishes Rose.
