My great great grandfather was Thomas Knowles, born in Ince 1824. He was a partner in the Pearson & Knowles Coal Mining Company. The Wigan Observer wrote an article about him titled Rags to Riches dated 3rd January 1969 which I have a copy of. I know information about his working life but have very little info about his home/family life. My teenage daughter is doing an essay about him for a history assignment and the more we know the better! Thanks in advance, Jane
