Angel 18,click on the search box at the top of this page,right under "Forum"
type Jean Middleton into it..you'll see walking day photos,find the one where it mentions Mrs Ramsdales.,the house next door to her was the
Kennys....also if you haven't seen "Wallgate streets and families" which is
on the same page you're in for a treat but be warned..it's a very long
thread. Good luck.
