Longbottom Family Genealogy Forum
Joanne, I think that your Emma Louise Longbottom b1865 is the sister of my husband's grand mother Annie Longbottom b1877. Their father was Cyrus b1842, mother Alice Oldfield b1844 and his father was Thomas b1839 and mother Hannah Colly b1845 (If you go to genes reunited and find Graham Long as a tree builder you will be able to follow the tree back to 1595)- put in Cyrus's details and you'll find Graham there.
If our Annie is Emma's sister may be you could help solve/confirm a family mystery - let me explain. Graham's father was George Longbottom b1913 in Pendleton, Manchetser and was the son of Annie Longbottom. No Fathers name is shown on Georges birth certificate. Annie lived in Chorlton on Medlock with her father and 2 brothers according to the 1901 census. George's background has been shrouded in mystery - never spoken of - his widow knows very little. What she has said was that he was brought up by a Mr and Mrs Beevers as he was orphaned at an early age. At 21 he inherited a house in Morniington Street, Chorlton on Medlock, which he moved into when he married in 1937. He was living with a Beever(s) in St Saviours Street Chorlton on Medlock until his marriage, and his inherited house was rented to a Jack Beever(s) who paid rent for the house to an man called Evans. Evans was a police Inspector and Georges widow describes him as George's guardian. Inspector Evans retired to Blackpool and George would go off to visit him when the family visited Blackpool on holiday, always alone with lottle explaination of who he was seeing and why.
If you, or your family can fill in our blanks and confirm we have the "right" Annie we would be very pleased Thankyou Carole Long
