My maternal grandfather was Charles H. Partington of Cincinnati, Ohio, born in late 1800's, died in 1958.His father was also Charles Partington, died 1940.I'm told that HIS father was Thomas Partington, who came from England (Manchester area?) to Cincinnati sometime in the 1840's or 50's, but who returned to England after marrying (Margaret Poppe?) & fathering a son.I have a picture alleged to be him (Thomas), standing next to a very large gear.
Charles H. Partington had two daughters, so the name has died out for this line.
I would love to find out if there is any information available on Thomas Partington.
