What a pleasure to see (yes, us too....there will always be
a 'Benjamin' Rollins, a law through all the branches)
Pleased as punch to be able to look at those twiglets in that branch. Sat here smiling my head off.

Mary Melling lived in Billinge Road at no 98. Olive lived with her until her marriage to Harry Daly. Mary had a garden to the rear of the house and she grew flowers and vegetables. She also had apple trees there, and a few hens. All the children round about there called her Aunty Mary.
