Mark of Man 89 · Holiday Memory

Filey Sands

I chose Florence May because Filey Genealogy & Connections only provides her birth date – and a couple of siblings. I am pleased she had a long life, but after almost five hours of research, I was still not in a position to put her on the Shared Tree.  (If you look for her in FamilySearch Records, birth year 1880, the top four hits should be hers.)

I couldn’t find Catherine on the Shared Tree either. A singleton from Flamborough, I chose her because she may have lived to be a hundred and five – and Kath noted her epitaph in FG&C.

To help the helpless in time of need, and ease the labours of my sex with speed;

To save the infant and the tender wife; was the employment of my life;

Many from pains my skilful hands did free, but none from certain death could rescue me;

My time on earth is gone, my life is past; You must surely follow me at last.

I put Robert and Rachel’s headstone photo on the Shared Tree; Jane’s was already there. I will update this post with information about Florence and Mary Pickering in the next few days.
