Sarah CROWDER at Pentrich
Sarah Crowder or Crowther was my 5x great grandmother, who married James Crowther 1800 at Birstall. Would it be at all possible to get a full photo of the gravestone please?

I will try & get you one the next time I am in Pentrich, although I am not sure there is much more to see.

Many thanks for this most interesting research; I'm sure there are many like myself, that appreciate the effort you put in.
Sincere thanks, Dave.

Laura SLACK, Spital Memorials
Appreciate the photo of the memorial to Laura SLACK. Laura SLACK went to school with Jessie COULTER, who was living with her family at the Red Lion Hotel in Chesterfield in the 1881 Census. Jessie emigrated with her family to NZ, then onto Australia, in 1883. She kept in touch with Laura throughout her life. Laura never married, and after her mother died, she lived with an Uncle, and worked in his bookshop. She used to send books to Jessie's grandsons as Christmas presents (keeping in touch with them even after Jessie died in 1915). Some of them are still on my bookshelves. One of Jessie's sons (my Great Uncle), and a grandson (my father), visited Laura in World War I, and World War II, respectively, when serving with Australia's Armed Forces. Laura wrote letters to them whilst they were serving (as described in their diaries and/or letters home), and when they visited, showed them the places that the Coulter family frequented before they moved to Australia. Have photos of Laura at various ages, sent to Australia, with writing on the back that explained what they were. Laura knew what friendship meant. I haven't been able to find out who Laura's father was - her mother seemed to be bringing up Laura on her own.

John and Alice Wood Graves
Very nice the work of the photographer and researcher; image of John Wood (1734-1792) & Alice Wood, nee Oldfield (1734-1797). It helps to have this information to confirm their geneaolgy - pedigree. They are my great-grandparents four times removed. My great grandfather Ernest Thornhill born 21 Sep 1865 in Kirkdale, West Derby (Liverpool), Lancashire, England immigrated to Port Hope, Ontario, Canada in 1869. In 1884 he moves to Chicago, Illinois.
