Miss Speakman was my Great Aunt Bessie, my Granddad Hugh Speakmans Sister. They lived in Appley Bridge.
Bernard, if you know which Joe Speakman is on the photo, anything about him at all, it would very much help my Speakman family history searches. I don't think it is the Joe from Johnson's Farm in Lafford Lane, rather before his time.
Nellie and Lucy Valentine are my father's (John Valentine's) Aunties. They both died 15-20 years ago
My paternal grandfather's name was Joe Speakman. I wonder if it's the same one? He lived in Beggs, OK before moving to Petaluma, CA in the late 30's, early 40's. I believe he died in 1966(?). In any case, we're probably related!
I think his photo is amazing and my Nan's brother is in the front row. My nan's name was Nellie Mcnamara and her brother was James (Jimmy) Mcnamara. Any further info would be really appreciated! x
I seem to have pinned down the Joe Speakman to a son of William Speakman and Margaret Agnes (France/Wynn). He was born Joseph Francis in 1905, and was the only one to survive a sister Frances Mary (1903-1913), and brothers Thomas (1908-1916), William (born & died 1910), and Hugh (1913-1926).
