Here goes... To answer you my people were in the San Francisco Bay area of California.However, I received (today in the mail) my Great Grandmother's death cerificate. It names John Dagnall as her father.So I looked him up in the UK Census records of 1851 on the Geneology.com website.
I found the following: William Dagnall, head of house was a cotton weaver, 25 years of age.Born in Cheshire, England, Latchford. His wife Ann, 24 years of age.Born in Lancashire, England, Warrington Son James, 4 years of age. Born in Cheshire, England, Latchford Son Thomas, 2 years of age.Born in Cheshire, England, Latchford Son John, 4 mos of age.Born in Cheshire, England, Latchford Address: Old Road Family number: 10291
This would make John 26 years when my great-grandmother was born.
I am very new to this kind of research so do you think that I have found some family?
I also would like to point out that the head of house is William and second son is Thomas.Could these be your Dagnall's also?If your Dagnall's look similar please send me what you have?
