Get in touch so I can ex­plain my fam­ily’s WWI con­nec­tion

Leek Post & Times - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR -

I AM re­lated to one of the WW1 sol­diers named on the Ni­chol­son Memo­rial.

He is listed as Pri­vate John Good­win, how­ever, my fam­ily re­search has shown that, at birth, he was reg­is­tered not as John Good­win, but as John Frost.

The 1911 cen­sus records them liv­ing at 21 Getliffes Yard, Derby Street, Leek, to­gether with Ann Jane’s other chil­dren, Samp­son Hollinshead Frost and Harry Frost.

Ann Jane later had two daugh­ters, Mary and Alice. If my re­search is cor­rect, all the chil­dren mar­ried; Samp­son to Gla­dys Row­lands, Harry to Edith James, Mary to Fred­er­ick Hansell and Alice to Ralph John­son.

I would very much like to con­tact any de­scen­dants of Ann Jane Frost’s chil­dren, so that I may ex­plain our fam­ily con­nec­tion and share the in­for­ma­tion I have gath­ered re­gard­ing Pri­vate John Good­win.

I can be con­tacted on 01538 361068. Terry Booth Leek
