Lancaster families

Yesterday I spent a couple of hours in the LDS family history library in Parktown, Johannesburg, looking at bishops transcripts of parish records from Lanacaster, Lancashire, England.The families i was looking for were Cottam, Bagot (or Bagott) and Mashiter.

Some of the pages were damaged, so I wasn’t able to read the full record, and none of the people I found in the records appeared to be related — yet. But in some ways the Bishops Transcripts were more useful than the original registers, as they showed separately the baptisms, marriages and burials that took place in  the different chapelries in the parish.

The main family I’m looking for is:

I hope the chart showing how they are related is visible.

The Green brothers were born in Montreal, Quebec, and came to the Cape Colony in the 1840s with their father, William John Green. Henry was, like his father, in the Commissariat Department of the Army, and was at one time British Resident of the Orange River Sovereignty, and then lived in Colesberg until he joined the diamond rush to Kimberley. Edward Lister Green was an army officer who served in India, China and Ireland, and retired to New Zealand.

Family honoured for memorial

I’m not sure which branch of the Growden family this is, but it seems interesting nevertheless.

A northwest Ohio family who helped establish the national World War�II Memorial in Washington, D.C.�got special recognition Sunday.
Former Veteran Roger Durbin from Berkey, Ohio�helped come up with the memorial idea, and Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur helped pave the way in Washington.
Roger’s granddaughter, Melissa Growden, was also a part of building the memorial, and she accepted the gift. “We receive phone calls, emails… People stop us on the street to say thank you,” she says.
