MARY ANN LUMSDEN married Charles Herbert (Herbert Charles) Newton in England. The family names I remember are "Great Grandma Whitzey" whom both Charles and Mary Ann were related to.
I am looking for her brother and sisters, mother's name and such. I used to have it and have lost the information and now her oldest daughter Irene is dead.
Mary Ann Lumsden and her little brother Luke were raised for many years in an Orphanage in London, after being taken there because her mother could not keep care of them, as they were the youngest of a huge brood of children. Mary Ann married Herbert Charles Newton and they moved to Wasington State, United States with their daughter Irene Evelyn Newton. Irene was born approximately 1921 or so. I am not certain unless I can go to Everett and check her head stone.
I am the (divorced) daughter-in-law of Irene and want to find the information for my daughter. I would appreciate any help in finding the start of this so I can continue to collect the information. I do know Mary Ann and Luke were the last children of their mother who had 12 other children, including twins who died at birth, who were also named Mary Ann and Luke Lumsden.
Thanks, Robin, Please put LUMSDEN on the subject line as I am recievieving some real nasty trash and was forced to put things in the junk and then check it before moving it to my address book. thanks,
