Ann Fortescue was the 1st wife of my Ggrandfather, Isaac Head, b. 1838 in Dalston, Cumberland, England, d. 1915 in Durham, England. My info says Ann Louisenda Fortescue was b.1839 in Dalston, Cumberland, England, however, it could have been Ireland. They m. 1861 in Carlisle, Cumberland and they are found on the 1871 Census for Howden, North Bedburn, Durham, with children Elizabeth Jane Alexandra Head and William Head both born in Witton-le-Wear, Durham.
Daughter, Elizabeth Jane Alexandra Head, b. 1861, m. in 1883 to Isaac Bickerstaffe in Clayton-le-Moors, Lancashire, England. Nothing more is known of son William Head.

My Ggrandfather's 2nd wife was Elizabeth Ashbridge, b. 1856 in Caldbeck, Cumberland, England. The had three children, Robert, b. 1878 (my grandfather) John Joseph and Isaac Jr. Elizabeth left Isaac and John Joseph "Jack" in England and brought Robert& Isaac Jr. to East Palestine, Columbiana Co.,OH,USA in 1891. Robert m. Sarah Leake of East Palestine, Ohio and they had two daughters, Pauline Leake Heads and my mother, Geneva Helen Heads. I would love to connect to anyone who knows anything about any of these families.
