A photo shows the 17th century Blackley Home that John and Mary lived in.
Blackley is a Hamlet located in the Calderdale district in the county of West Yorkshire in England. The home was named "Blackley End" due to its location at the end of the Blackley Hamlet. The Home was high on the top of a hill, next door to the Blackley Baptist Chapel and overlooking, in the distance the towns of Elland and Holywell Green. As of 2020 the home still stands.
From the "letters" (see below) it was evident that Mary and her family really missed Alfred and Phoebe when they moved to America.
There were 11 handwritten "letters" written by the Hepworth and Armitage familes that were sent to America.
It appears as though Mary and her family were very much involved in the adjacent Blackley Baptist Church - e.g. Their son Thomas was a Deacon.

BLACKLEY GENEALOGY TRIP ....

Much of what is known about John and Mary was obtained during a Genealogy trip to Blackley in 2002 by Ken and Jackie Hepworth. At that time they were lucky enough to:
a. Have a Tour of Mary's Stone Home by the current owners
b. Have free access to the office in the Blackley Chapel to look up old records.
c. Explore the Cemetery behind the Chapel and Mary's Home.

Information that was obtained included:

a. Cost of Pew "rent" paid by Mary for her family. Ken and Jackie actually sat in her pew.
b. Found Marys Gravestone in the Cemetery behind the Chapel.
c. Ken addressed the congregation at Sunday Services and explained who he was and the relationship that John and Mary had to the Chapel.

Due to “Find A Grave” policy no automatic “We Remember” linkage is provided for Mary since she died in a foreign country - ie. England.

A manually generated “We Remember” page has created for Mary.
