Mary (1837 - 1915) was the Aunt of Luke Mason (item 20662). She married George Wilcock in 1860 at St Georges, Wigan. She lived in Pemberton for most of her life. The photo was probably taken ~ 1913.

That's a great picture Carol. Not sure if I can see the resemblance between Luke and Mary though, can you?

Mary was in her mid seventies then, but I do not have any other photos. The photo is genuine as it was in a set taken with her daughter, Elizabeth Houghton, plus family. My Grandma was ~ 3 at the time. Confirmed by my grandma (who died 1982)
