  Comments Thank you for this wonderful site!!
I am hoping someone here could help me find information about the Occleshaw family of Wigan....through much research I know the family goes back quite a ways. .y mother's mother was an Occleshaw from Wigan. Her name was Jessie and she had a brother named Harold. If you know of this family thank you for your help. I know Jessie Occleshaws dad worked in the coal mines in some way. Jessie came to the US I believe in 1906 as a little girl.
Thank you!!!
