Re: The Thirkell family of Wellsville, Cache County, Utah
Hello Ms. Dixit,
I am very interested in some of the information about the Wellsville Thirkells and any information you may have on John Pinnock Thirkell's English brothers and sisters.I am descended from George Pinnock Thirkell (John's brother).He married Mary Brown (b. abt. 1817) and they had Ellen Jemima Thirkell.Ellen married James Saxby.Ellen and James had Edith Ellen Saxby.Edith Ellen had an illegitimate child Edward Goodborn Saxby with Thomas Goodborn (never to be heard from again).Edward married Lenora Travis and they had my grandfather John Edward Saxby.
I am currently in possession of a paper written by George Thirkell which was found in the Saxby bible (James' father Samuel owned this).It describes the birth dates and places of George, Mary and his children.It is dated January 29, 1865.I have scanned it and if you like I can send it to you via email.For further correspondence, please use email@example.com.My father is also in possession of a jug given to him by the Earl of Cardigan for his service as a gamekeeper.
Hope this interests you.If you have any correspondence from America regarding these descendents, please drop me a line.Please also do a search on Rootsweb as I have loaded by Gedcom there and am also available at www.genesreunited.com.
