Re: Trying to find my grandfather John Willie Crabtree

Hello again I’ve not been on the site for a while. I have still had no luck in finding a picture of my grandad, John Willie Crabtree, married to Frances Ellen Dinsdale in 1929. If there is anybody out there who could help, I would be eternally grateful. It’s the final piece to my jigsaw. My grandad ...

Re: Trying to find my grandfather John Willie Crabtree

Thank you Stanley. I live in hope that one day, a relative will read this and have a picture. I've been looking for years, but not giving up yet.

Re: Trying to find my grandfather John Willie Crabtree

Hi all
It's quite some time since I posted. I am still trying to find a picture of my Grandfather John Willie Crabtree of Cowgil Farm Sawley. I have never seen a picture of him as he died before I was born. Any help would be gratefully received.
Thank you in advance.

Re: Trying to find my grandfather John Willie Crabtree

Not too sure on this one Stanley. My dad's uncle Harry would have had a father called Richard and not Harry, he was also quite short of hair but wore a toupe. Interesting though, that they may be relatives. I will look them out in my family tree, but their first names do not sound familiar, and I do...

Re: Trying to find my grandfather John Willie Crabtree

Great stuff Wendy, thank you again. Just to clarify so I have the correct person, Harry is the little guy on the end, on the back row far left.

Re: Trying to find my grandfather John Willie Crabtree

Yes Harry was John Willies younger brother. I remember him with great fondness, he was a very funny man. I was bridesmaid to his daughter Brenda. A photo of him would be nice to see as a little boy. A picture of my grandad is just about the final piece to my jigsaw now though.

Re: Trying to find my grandfather John Willie Crabtree

Unfortunately not. Only my grandads orher sons family and they know less than me, I'm afraid.

They may have been Baptist or Methodist, but I'm not too sure on this.

Re: Trying to find my grandfather John Willie Crabtree

Thanks Wendy, do you think if I get a copy of the marriage certificate, then there may have been a wedding photo in the local paper? Did they put wedding pictures in the paper in those days?

Re: Trying to find my grandfather John Willie Crabtree

It turns out that Cloggy is my first cousin once removed. We have had some lovely chats and he has been very helpful filling gaps on my grandma's side of the family, but is unable to shed much light on the Crabtree side of the family. He spent a proportion of his younger years growing up alongside m...

Re: Trying to find my grandfather John Willie Crabtree

So pleased you managed to find this piece of the jigsaw Wendy. I was wondering if we may find a photo from possible wedding pictures. I don't know if wedding pictures were posted in the local papers in those days. I am not too sure what year my grandparents got married, but I have read somewhere tha...

Re: Trying to find my grandfather John Willie Crabtree

Have just sent Cloggy a PM and it appears to be sat in my outbox and not showing as Sent. Do you know if it will have sent. I think the problem occurred when I wrote part of the message and then saved it to drafts.
