William Shann, Yorkshire
Am looking for information about a William Shann, Yorkshire, England.He lived in Leeds as early as 1820-1821 as his son, Mathias, was born in 1820, Leeds, and christened Sept 5, 1821 at St. Peter in Leeds. This Mathias married Rebecca Webster December of 1845 at St Peter, Leeds.They had four children that I know of: Mary Elizabeth, 1847, Joseph Webster, 1849, Sarah, 1850, and William Henry, 1857.Would like any genealogy information about any of the above, especially William.I don't know his birth date or place and do not know his wife's name. Would like to know these things along with his parents names, birth places and dates. William's son Mathias came to America and settled in Michigan. Mathias and Rebecca's children were all born in Wortley, Leeds, England, and for sure his son Joseph came to Michigan, but do not know about the others.
