Here’s an enquiry I received in the last week from Julie Roberts, resident in Lincolnshire but with local family. I think folks might find this an interesting challenge, particularly in respect of an unfound grave in Ogley Hay (presumably St James or the nearby cemetery).
I’ll let Julie explain:
Hi, I love your blog.
I would like to contact a local family history enthusiast who I could talk to about my grandmother’s family. She was Jessie Kerr, born in Brownhills but her mother was from Elgin and her father Charles Campbell Kerr was from Ayrshire.
He was an army training officer and I do have further details of addresses etc. He was a soldier of some repute and was buried at Ogley Hay church yard (I have the funeral notice from the paper) but I have never succeeded in finding it.
My family now live in Cannock, I’m in Lincolnshire but I’m keen to trace Scottish family connections.
Any help would be gratefully received
Julie ROBERTS (nee Eccleshall)
Thanks to Julie for a great enquiry and challenge for the researchers: If you can help please do comment here, mail me on BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com or hit me up on social media.
