A Nice Day
I get lots of requests for help from fellow researchers, and was contacted by David Riley recently about the article I wrote some months ago regarding the Lowertown Old Burial Ground.
David was researching the Riley side of his family and found details in the article about one of his ancestors Mary Ann Riley 1815-1869 who married John Bancroft,a local Mill Owner, in 1838 and who’s table top stone is in the graveyard.
David came up to Yorkshire recently and we had a great day going through his family tree. He went away with lots of information he did not have already, including photos of his Great-Grandparents, which he had never seen before!….a good day for all concerned.
The photo, taken beside the gravestone shows David, together with John Kitchen and Norma Mackrell who are both trustees of the Lowertown Old Burial Ground
