Been researching THWAITES for some time now. Trying to find 2 of my G Grandfathers brothers who, it is believed, emigrated to America, possibly California. JOHN WILLIAM THWAITES b.1881 in CROOK, County Durham, England and HERBERT THWAITES b.1892 in CROOK, County Durham, England. Their father was SIMON THWAITES b.1862 and their mother MARGARET ANN THWAITES b.1861. Any information would be gratefully received.
