My great grandmother was Ida Ann Tillett, b-15 Nov 1856 in Northumberland County, Pennsylvania. She married a James D. Walburn on 19 Oct 1884 there, and one of their sons was my grandfather, Frederick W. Walburn.
When my grandfather died, in his belongings was a picture cut out of a magazine, I believe, of a Ben Tillett from England who was a secretary in a Labor Union. From an e-mail to England, I received info on his union activities and a statue to him, but nothing on family.
From a copy of Ida's death certificate, her father was David Tillett born in England and who married a Sarah Hummel from Irish Valley, Pennsylvania. The time frame would put his (David's) birthdate around 1820 or so. Could this be an uncle to Ben? I'm not having much luck in getting info on the family or of David's immigration. Would appreciate any info you may have on Ben's extended family; I don't know why my grandfather would have Ben's picture unless there was some relation.
Thank you for your time.
