People   (Re-unions, trace old friends and relatives.)

Started by: lbarlow73 (12)

Finally, after nearly 11 years of searching, I've identified who and where my Great-Uncle William Burton is. He was born in 1901 to Thomas and Elizabeth Burton in Newcastle. Following his mother's death when he was just 3 years old and the family's subsequent relocation to Middleton near Oldham, he was adopted by his Great-Aunt Catherine Stott and lived in Wigan. I recently found his grave in Ince cemetery where he is buried with his wife Elizabeth (nee Johnson, died 1984?). He died in 1933 which perhaps explains why my mum and her brother and sisters knew very little of "Uncle Willie". From my searching around Freebmd, I believe he had 2 sons - William and Anthony.

Does anyone know of the family or have any information/contacts for his sons (if they are still with us) or perhaps their children???

Any help greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Lynne.
