Sorry folks – a bit of a reduced service the last few days while I did Christmas, researched the New Year Quiz and chased after some suspension bridges (more on that later). Anyway, on with it…
Old friend of the blog Lisa Ashby (nee Downes) is still carefully researching her Holden family tree, and could do with a little help – she’s come across a Walsall Wood gentleman called George Colley, who passed away in 1940, and she’d like to know a bit more about his history if possible.
Lisa wondered if anyone knew him pr his family, and could fill in any gaps.
Remember I was looking for information regarding my great grandfather William Holden? He married a woman called Louisa Johnson and they lived in Walsall Wood. Well, the ongoing saga continues…
In the course of my research, I’ve come across a gentleman called George Colley (also from Walsall Wood)… Does the name Colley ring a bell, my mum is from Walsall Wood and remembers hearing the name George Colley, but can’t remember where. He seems to have passed away in 1940.
Thanks for the enquiry Lisa – always welcome. I’m hoping that some of the Walsall Wood contingent can help with this, or maybe some of the other genealogists out there.
