      Notes from Don Houliston (10 March 2004):
      The marriage certificate (Rosebank Methodist) mentions my Mum's address as being Stoneycroft. Liverpool, England. I do not have a copy of her Birth Certificate. She was born in 1889. (13th December) At one time they lived in New Brighton (which is across the Mersey from Liverpool). She taught school in Northwich where she met my Dad. Her Dad was still alive in 1927 when we visited the UK and we saw him briefly

      Notes from e-mail from Don Houliston 17 April 2004:
      I met my mom's father in 1928 when I was a boy of seven, when my Dad had long leave and we all went to the UK. He was already a widower then (I think - I do not remember seeing his wife) and he was living in Liverpool or on the other side of the Mersey. My Mom met my Dad when she was teaching in Northwich and he was in Imperial Chemicals.
