Research Notes

  • There are a few inconsistancies in the records for Lilly.
  1. Place of Birth: Given as Lees, and Ashton under Lyme in Lancashire, England.
  2. Immigration on census gives different years. Any date between 1895 and 1910.
  3. Her age on the 1930 census is about 5 years off. That could be a mistake by the census taker, or the person providing the information [9]
