Hi Everyone,

Have recently rejoined (last on 2010) and trying to see if anyone out there is related to my Great Grandmother, Rachel Ann Graham.

Born on 16 JAN 1864 in Hartlepool, Durham, England
Died on 05/05/1936 at 26 Egerton Street, Birkenhead

I would appreciate any assistance anyone could offer.

Kind Regards
Lynette

Is Graham her maiden name and did she marry Thomas Stewart in 1883?

Welcome back, Lynette.

If she is the Rachel who married Thomas Stewart, am I correct in assuming that Thomas is your direct blood ancestor, and that Rachel married into the Stewart family, but that you don't know if her siblings/cousins/etc have living descendants?

From your question, you're really looking for descendants rather than ancestors?

Stephen has her birth place as 26 George Street Hartlepool if this is the address you have from her birth certificate. George Street is still there but the houses have been demolished and there is now a car park and furniture warehouse on the site.

These are all possible children of Rachel and Thomas:-

Stewart Florence 1894 — 1894 England & Wales Births 1837-2006 Hartlepool, Durham, England

Stewart Daniel 1883 — 1883 England & Wales Births 1837-2006 Hartlepool, Durham, England

Stewart Eliza Alice 1889 — 1889 England & Wales Births 1837-2006 Hartlepool, Durham, England

Stewart John 1887 — 1887 England & Wales Births 1837-2006 Hartlepool, Durham, England

Stewart Thomas 1892 — 1892 England & Wales Births 1837-2006 Hartlepool, Durham, England

The birth in 1889 is for Eliza Alice and NOT Elizabeth Ann as you have in your tree.
