  Comments Hello all from the states- Just found this site and very much enjoyed it. My Mom, Nana & Grandad were from Wigan. My Grandfather was Jack Keenan; my Nana was Margaret Lowe Keenan; their eldest child, Madge, was my Mother. It was wonderful looking at the old pictures. My Grandfather went into the mines at the age of 9. Somewhere around 1907. My Nana worked in a cotton mill. They emmigrated here around 1920 or so. I saw a photo, placed in one of the old albums by someone named Margaret Kneale. A group photo of church musicians-and saw my Grandfather in it. What a treat! Margaret Kneale correctly called him out; even mentioning his move here to the states! Margaret-should you happen to read this...thank you! It was touching to see & know somebody had remembered him. We all thought the world of him. Please-if you read this, would you drop me a note? I'd love to say hello and see how you knew him. You also called out his brother-in-law, J. Lowe. I hadn't realized that-it was the first time I've ever seen that brother of my Nana's. Again, thank you-wherever you my be. Sincerely yours, Denise Brickell Vaughan

  Comments Hello!! My mum and several generations behind her are also from Wigan. Would love to hear from any one who knew Walter and Agnes Patton from Park Road. Would love to hear from anyone who knew my mum or grandmum who lived with the Pattons until 1951. My grandmum was Edna Howard Corless and my mum was June Corless.

  Comments To Eileen Ryan. Wigan is still as you left it. The council has taken over control of surrounding towns and call everything Wigan. It's 'Wigan this' and 'Wigan that', anybody or anything within a 10 mile radius is classed as a Wigan whatever. I've lived in Golborne all my life and class Warrington as my town, rarely going to Wigan. Indeed, my address is Warrington. But Hardybutts is still there, in Wigan !
