Re: Poorhouse look-up please?

My fault really, I should have only looked for what you requested. BUT! Once I get started on these old books I tend to go off on a tangent and start looking for anything that remotely seems to fit. (I seem to get a "high" reading about people who lived in the 19th century and their "ups and downs" ...

Re: Poorhouse look-up please?

I wish I had seen that other thread about Margaret Brady as I just transcribed the same info for you. Oh well!, it gave me more practice at reading the old writing.

Re: Poorhouse look-up please?

Nina, I could find NO Allens that matched up to your request nor could I find any correct Gordons. I did find however a reference to a Margaret Brady widow of Patrick Brady and I believe she is yours. Do you have the info on her already or do you wish me to post what I transcribed? John. PS I found ...

Re: Information provided to Poor House

If the information regarding a "mistress" and 2 illegitimate children was going to hinder his application for relief then they would be conveniently forgotten unless someone...

Re: Whole family in poorhouse!

Hi ninatoo, found myself with a little time to spare today and went up to the Mitchell and found info on the Seigersons/Siegersons and Crighton/Crichton. Maybe because I have been away from the books for a while that I found them very difficult to read but I managed to write down some info. I will s...
