So, the March posting for the genealogy challenge is going to be a quick one – I’ve chosen the ‘Top Ten’ theme, and have picked out some of the names that stand out in a crowd.
Here you go, in no particular order:
Carmi Burrow; my 5th great grandfather, one of 5 children that I know of, lived c1754-1831
Hephzibah Towell; 2nd cousin to my other half. Born 1925. Just love the name!
Elkenah Shepherd Thwaites; 2nd cousin, twice removed of other half
Rob Copperwath: 7th g grandfather
Aesnath Dodsworth; 1st cousin 3x removed
Mary Gatenby; because I have 21 of them, and they’re a nightmare to sort out!
Troth Limn; my 5th great grandmother.
Algethia Wells Hebden; a 3rd cousin of my other half
The Firth family for giving their daughters easy to research names – Rhela, Dula and Fenetta
Andrew P Motion; 5th cousin once removed – for bragging rights 😉
There could have been so many more, but these are the ones that stand out for me.
