I am searching for information on my husband's grandparents. His grandfather ISAAC PRIESTLEY,b. Halifax, Yorkshire England Feb. 16, 1875. He was the son of ALFRED PRIESTLEY, a farmer, and HANNAH BRIGGS.Am not sure how many siblings he had but know of at least 1 sister.
My husband's grandmother, EDITH DENTON, was born in Nov. 1874 in I believe, Stainland. She was the daughter of MILES STOTT DENTON and CAROLINE??She was the youngest of 14 children, 7 boys and 7 girls. We believe her father had a liverly stable. EDITH DENTON and ISAAC PRIESTLEY married and emigrated to Winnipeg Manitoba Canada sometime in the early 1900's. They had 3 children, all born in Canada. Isaac took his family to the U S in about 1927. They settled in Illinois where they remained until their deaths, ISAAC in 1937 and EDITH in 1963. Isaac was a stone cutter and had a stone yard in Illinois. I have had no luck searching this family so any help would be appreciated. Following are the names of some of EDITH"S sibblings,
JOS. DENNIS (it is possible that DENNIS was the maiden name of CAROLINE)
JOHN JAMES b. 1859
ALICE b. 1861
EMILY b. 1863
WALTER b. 1865
STOTT b. 1873
