Hi Cindy, nice to meet you.
I have only looked at Dewsbury much earlier (pre 1653) so I do not have details that you want. Have you looked at the IGI? It shows that Samuel & Mary Leeming had 4 children at Dewsbury; John 1833, Emma 1836, Elizabeth 1838 & Thomas Stapleton 1841. You could get the birth certificate for Elizabeth or Thomas. That would give you Mary's maiden name. It might also be wothwhile you looking at the Dewsbury film at your local LDS family history centre where you can confirm the IGI entries and perhaps find a marriage.
On the small" x" deal I find I can delete a posting and the problem is the "x" is not showing up on my black background in white like it did before. As long as I see the "hand" I can delete a post. I might have to change the colors. It's odd that it showed white before and not now so it must be either a black "x" or some other dark color. Weird. I wonder if anyone else with black backgrounds are having an issue. I'll check that out.
There was that small x on my page I often used but today it's not there today for some reason. As to that scammer there's lots of information on the Internet about it. It's the biggest scam going right now. We don't need that on GenWise for sure.
I'll have to find out why I'm not betting the little x anymore. Maybe it's a temporary glitch, I don't know. Hopefully, that will be solved soon.
Thanks again for your input. The more people that complain about scammers on GenWise; the better.
My Yates are Thomas born in Naunton, Gloucestershire in 1848. His father Richard born 1808 in Lower Guiting, Gloucstershire and his father Thomas Yeates born about 1775, I think in Gloucestershire. I don't think any of my Yates' lived in Lancashire, so I don't think we have a connection. Good luck in your search.
Thank you for the kind words on my granddaughter. Her mommy and her came home last Friday and asked if I had her picture up on the internet yet, and if she was put into the genealogy database. I told her no and that she would have to do all the work as I was updating the surname database with 41 pages of updates and I was tired. (I did it Tuesday night after I got home after the baby was born - but I didn't tell her that). Now I'm in a lull with genealogy, so I thought I's catch up on my blog's.
No, unfortunately my ancestor Alexander Kidwell was born in England emigrated to the Cape of Good Hope (South Africa) where both he and his wife Phebe Tubb died. They left a fairly large family in South Africa.
Hi Cindy, sorry I didn't get back to you earlier. I don't know how Patrick McCann arrived or when in the U.S. I haven't been able to track beyond Rhode Island. Also don't have any information on parents or siblings. I think he had a brother Barney, or at least a relative, as a Barney McCann age 20 is listed with the family in R.I. in 1850. Patrick would have been 30.
