About Our Family Research
I am searching for information on Abraham Isherwood born in England. We beleive he was born in Blackpool in the 1880's. We know he married Margaret (unknown) and has three children in Blackburn, Lancashire. Grace, William & 1 brothern unknown. He brought them to the US sometime around 19-14-16. Abraham also has another woman, Elizabeth Smith, who bore him 4 children, born in Blackpool, England. Vera 1904 (my grandmother) Harry 1906, Marion 1914, then Abraham also brought them to America in 1916. My Aunt Ruth was born here in 1919. Both families knew of one another. Everyone settled in New York City.
Vera Smith (Isherwood)married Frank Smith (no relation but makes it all the more confusing)
