24 October

Thank you to those who sent birthday greeting for me yesterday via the blog and via email. I had a lovely day and your wishes made it even lovelier. Today there are two what-the-heck-became-of-them people, and a cousin’s daughter.

24 October 1804
Baptism of my gggg aunt Mary Green at Worsbrough, Yorkshire, daughter of linen bleacher Joseph Green and Ann Cox. Unfortunately she had a very common name, and none of the records appear to be of her. There is a marriage of a Mary Green in 1823 at the neighbouring parish of Darfield to Thomas Hawcroft but I suspect it is not.

24 October 1870
Birth of Jane Brydon Strachan at Dreghorn, daughter of John Strachan and Agnes Scott and granddaughter of my ggg uncle Munro Strachan and Janet Jamieson. She is with her parents in Dreghonr in 1871 and 1881, but from there on is a bit of mystery. There are trees on Ancestry with conflicting information about her marriage and her death, none of which I can verify without spending a small fortune on ScotlandsPeople.

24 October 1980
Birth of a cousin’s daughter here in Leeds, descended from James Fraser and Clara Green.

  1. Judy; What a pleasant surprise today. The addition of your picture to the blog was great, one of a very attractive woman by the way. Colin.
