Was Lucy the daughter of Joseph Eckersley and Alice Finch? Was your maiden name Leatherbarrow? Bolton is a small place, it seems unlikely that the Eckersley's from there are not all related and knew each other. I don't know if ever you saw the afternoon soap in England called Emmerdale Farm? It is about a farm in northern England (actually I always assumed Yorkshire from the accent).I saw it only a few times inadvertantly but since using search engines it has come up as having featured an Eckersley family. I can't imagine where the got the idea from.
