My hubby’s second great-grandfather, Thomas WATMOUGH, was born about 1838 in Bradford, Yorkshire, England to Joseph WATMOUGH (1796-1869) and Sarah (b. 1799). He died in December 1909 in West Riding, Yorkshire, England.
My hubby’s second great-grandmother, Emma KEITHLEY, was born about 1841 in Thackley, Yorkshire, England. Some people think that her parents were John Phillips KIGHTLY and Mary GOODLEY, but I am not extremely confident in that yet.
Below is what can be found in the 1871 England Census for this couple and their family.
