Richard Catlow b. UK to US 1819
I recently have been in touch with another descendant of Richard and Mary (Crowell) Catlow who has shared information from letters to Richard from his siblings in England and passed on down to him.From the letters we now know that Richard had siblings named:George, Martha, Jonathan, Sarah, Lydia, John and Joseph Peel Catlow . Parish records for Over Darwen, Lancashire show Martha b. 19 Jun 1792 to George and Mary (Peel) Catlow.Same records show most of the sibling’s birth or baptism dates.The father died 29 Nov 1832 in Dewsbury Yorkshire (phrasing in the letter was hard to decipher).Brother Jonathan came to US and was in Paterson NJ in 1850 and died before 1860 - had at least one son named William.The UK family seemed to be in and around Manchester, Lancashire & townships in Yorkshire. There are references in the letters to the Peel family - "seeing my mother here on Peel business"(letter from Joseph 1833 telling about their father’s death) - brother George received money from the Peels to help his business, same letter.If interested, please get in touch.
