Hello fellow WikiTree'ers!!!

I have an ancestor we are having issues locating. Well two actually. But great for all of us is they are husband and wife!! YAYS!!

We have been able to find some Census records, info on kids, some death dates, etc. However, we do not have Parents or Siblings!! Oh no!! So we need some help. The primary one we are stumped is Mary Ann Madison Atkinson. Born sometime in the early 1800's in England. She came to America with her husband and children. We know they went to Virginia, possibly Pennsylvania, Ohio, and then landed in my lovely hometown of Emporia, Lyon County, Kansas. Now we know everyone except Mary came to Kansas. They are all buried in the Maplewood Memorial Lawn Cemetery in Emporia, KS; except Mary and a child that we have not located yet named Margaret.

Last name might have also been spelled as Maddison.

 

Please Help!!

Thank you Ron. That was a huge help. I looked up the information on County Durham and it seems Atkinson may be a rare name in those parts. Was there any luck in finding Thomas Atkinson, Mary's husband, and his parentage?
Nothing on Thomas Atkinson, I'm afraid. Durham & Northumberland is my birth territory, and surname Atkinson is very common.
Thank you so much Ron. Are you familiar with the Gloucestershire/Forest of Dean area? I have the Beach family in that area that we are stumped on.
Yes familiar with the Forest of Dean Area,/Wye valley. You can contact me privately though my profile page, if you wish,  and I will see what I can assist with.
