BIG PIC­TURE

Macclesfield Express - - YOUR VIEWS -

DON’T LOSE GREEN BELT

friends to make them smile. I am a 72 year old Mother and Grand­mother and have lived in Mac­cles­field since 1985. Bar­bara Ben­nett (Mrs) The Whit­fields Mac­cles­field had five chil­dren, in­clud­ing my grand­fa­ther Thomas Ed­mund Slack, born 1869.

I have searched for a long time to try and find where James was buried, he is not in the grave in Sut­ton church­yard with his wife Mar­garet, and also who were his par­ents?

I also think he had a brother called Abra­ham.

Both James and Abra­ham were silk work­ers, and on the 1841 census they lived at Bank Edge Wild­boar­clough as lodgers.

Maud Slack went on to marry James Sidgely a po­lice sergeant in Mac­cles­field.

Please feel free to e mail me if you have any in­for­ma­tion which would help me eil­dor72@ hot­mail.co.uk

I also think Hyde in Cheshire has a fam­ily con­nec­tion. Thomas E Slack via email
