Searching for relatives and places in Castleford
Posted by Jeffery Smith on 10/7/2013, 12:05 am
I am looking for information regarding my relatives in Castleford. My great great grandfather was Timothy Smith who lived at 157 Lower Oxford Street according to the 1911 UK Census. He was 70 at the time. His son, my great grandfather was Thomas Smith and my grandfather was Thomas Smith (jr.). My grandfather immigrated to US in 1912. He was born in 1889 in Altoffs. He had a sister who was living at that address in 1911 whose name was Janet Smith. She later married a "Harry"(do not know last name) and in 1969 lived at 32 Willow Court Swawthorn Estates Castleford. In 1969 she discribes this address as a small flat. There seems to be much newer houses in that area now. According to notes my father left me, My great grandfather married Kate Marion (b. 1862) and they were buried at 4 Lane Ends. I cannot find anything about this address as it takes me to a warehouse. Was there a cemetary there in 1943?
My aunt Janet Smith mentioned above died in the 1970's date unknown. Looking for information about these addresses and how I can find out more about my Aunt Janet and any relatives that I may have in Castleford or Yorkshire today.
