Edward Alderson had mines in Netherton and had a brother James who went to America. He (Edward) was born in Keighley Yorkshire, and had children: John, Edward (my ancestor b.1881), William, Richard, Mary, Eleanor, Harry.
Edward (son) was connected with Russell Colliery in Dudley. William apparently spent many years in Africa. Mary married ?Evans and had an engineering shop in Rowley Road Dudley. Harry went to Australia maybe in the 1930s.
