Bio and Links
Bio Photo Unfortunately, it's evident that some have forgotten the reason why they are here! To help others with their family history research.
Instead, they seem to only be interested in creating and controlling an autocratic empire, (they list their self-imposed rules, and their 'reasons' why they won't help people).
A couple guess where they think someone is buried, and have refused to accept or acknowledge that I've informed them that the cemetery manager has said no one of that name has ever been buried there!

If anyone needs it, I will help if I can.

Wow, I can't believe that it's actually necessary to say this, ... but if you live in America (or anywhere thousands of miles away), and only know that a surname on your family tree, " ... is thought to originate in England".
Don't then ask me for a management transfer for everyone with that surname!

RE: Mullineux grave MI - Eccles
Thank you so much for working on the Mullineux family buried in Eccles (#148693815, #148693814 etc.). I really appreciate your diligence.

Thanks again,

RE: Samuel Symons, Higher Cemetery
I greatly appreciate what you have done already, and if you have time one fine summer day that would be wonderful - absolutely no rush, no pressure!
Thanks also for photographing William Henry Symons' grave. Sad that the family didn't erect a marker but I guess there wasn't much money around then.
Kind regards

RE: Samuel Symons, Higher Cemetery
Hi Toltecia,
Apologies for late response, but it was a lovely surprise to return home from a stint in hospital to find your note and Great-Uncle Sam's headstone. Thank you so much. The inscription is a little hard to decipher, so if it's possible to obtain a clearer image, I would be most grateful. I visited Higher Cemetery in 2008 to find other family members, but was unaware at the time that Samuel Symons was also buried there. I know that there is no marker for his brother Henry William Symons (my husband's grandfather).
Kind regards

Mary Lonsdale
Dear Toltecia, When I posted my reply, I saw your page, and wish to assure you that I am certain (as certain as one can be with genealogical research that is), that Mary Lonsdale's maiden name was Wilson, and that Frances Clementina Wilson was her younger sister. I have added short bios below, if you would wish to add them to their pages. Thanks for their Find-A-Grave pages, I doubt I would have found their grave otherwise.
Mary Wilson was born about 1773, in Manchester, Lancashire, England. She was the eldest daughter of William and Clementina Wilson, both of whom worked as Woollen Drapers in Manchester.

Mary Wilson was baptized on 23 September 1773, at St. Ann's Church in Manchester.

On 20 April 1797, Richard Lonsdale, of the Parish of Whalley, of Haslingden Township, Gentleman, and Mary Wilson of Manchester, spinster, were married at Manchester Cathedral of St. Mary, St. Denys and St. George. Richard and Mary Lonsdale had at least 4 children.

Lancaster Gazette; Saturday 22 September 1821; Page 3; Deaths: On Monday last, at Swinton, Miss Eliza Lonsdale, grand-daughter of the late Mrs. Clementina Wilson, of Market-place, Manchester.

Manchester Courier and Lancashire General Advertiser; Saturday 13 May 1843; Page 6; Deaths: On the 8th inst., at her residence, the Cottage, Swinton, Mrs. Mary Lonsdale, in the 70th year of her age.
Frances Clementina Wilson was born about 1780, in Manchester, Lancashire, England. She was the third daughter of William and Clementina Wilson, both of whom worked as Woollen Drapers in Manchester.

Frances Clementina Wilson was baptized on 6 December 1780, at St. Ann's Church in Manchester.

Manchester Courier and Lancashire General Advertiser; Saturday 28 September 1867; Page 12; Deaths: WILSON. - September 21, at the house of J. P. Ede, Esq. Miss Frances Clementina Wilson, formerly of Swinton.

Manchester, England, Church of England Deaths and Burials, 1813-1985: Burials in the Parish of Swinton, County of Lancaster, in the Year 1867; St. Peter's Church: Frances Clementina Wilson, who died in Lower Broughton, at the age of 93 years, was buried in St. Peter's Churchyard, on 27 September 1867.

RE: Mary Lonsdale et al
Dear Toltecia,

Yes, I am related to the Wilsons. According to, which has a helpful app displaying my degree of relationship to each person on their page in my tree, Mary Lonsdale is my 1st cousin 6x removed. Or, her father, William Wilson, was the brother of my 5th great grandfather, Thomas Wilson.
I live in California, and do my genealogy searches online. I 'discovered' the Wilson and Lorimer families this past December, and have been hunting their church records, graveyards and newspaper notices ever since.
I have yet to find Richard Lonsdale, Mary's husband. And, I know there is also a daughter, Eliza Lonsdale, who died 17 Sep 1821, in Swinton. If you have anymore Lonsdale or Wilson gravestone photos I would love to see them.
Are you related to Mary Lonsdale?

Sincerely, Christa (SunflowerCR)

RE: edits

You're right. Normally I get an e-mail telling me about required edits. I've never used this edit facility and didn't even know it was there. Anyway-all done now.

Thank you for doing the grave photo-I have 'messaged' the memorial manager to take a look and extract more information for the bio.
