A Message from Ruth Pearce

I am writing to ask if any of your members could help with my research regarding my Great Grandparents.
William Frederick Weak Nowell and Louisa nee Hill
Born abt 1835. Born abt 1836
Died 15.2.1911 Died 22.1.1910
Married 31.3.1859
My Grandmother was their youngest daughter Gertrude Kate.
They died about the time my Father was born. I was never told anything about them except that he was a Deacon at Westbury Leigh Baptist Church.
William Fredericks origins are a mystery. I have their Marriage and Death Certificates and all census information from Ancestry Records. I have also found their gravestone beside Westbury Leigh Baptist Church.
It would be marvellous to hear from anyone in Dillon Marsh.

Many thanks,
Ruth Pearce
