Hi Brenda

Hope you dont mind me writing. My mum's maiden name was mcguire and she lived at 3 John Street, Ince, Wigan. Her mum was Elizabeth Mcguire and her dad was James. Her mum married his brother I think after her father died. I am looking into their family history and wondered if there was a connection with bill. My mum was born on 1st Jan 1925 and before that they lost several children who were either stillborn or died of TB. My mum was the only survivor and was treated with kid gloves by her mum and dad. There was a sister who survived 22 months and died in 1924. James Mcguire is also burried in the same churchyard at Ince.

My mum Annie Mcguire moved to Devon after her parents death and joined the land army. Think she was about q8 or older. She then met my Dad Tony (Hussey) and had me and my sister, Amanda. My Dad died in 2000 and mum in 2003. I would love to hear from any possible relations in Wigan who may have known the family at 3 John's Road, Wigan.

Many thanks for your time.

Hi Brenda

I just saw your comment about my mum Annie Mcguire not being related and your relations coming from Ireland. My mum's dad was Irish too just thought youd like to know that, but it might not make any difference of course.
