I'm searching for information about my gr.grandmother and her parents and siblings. Her name is Ethel Aitken she was born 1895? I've been told by her daughter (my grandma)Ruby that she was born in Gateshead, Durham. She married (or did she?) a John Watson who died in the war. Daughter, Lillian Isabell Watson born 1/20/1911 Gateshead I believe. Then she came to the USA and married/remarried here , first child born 1916. Ethel had 2 brothers Robert who came to the US and George who stayed in ENG. and 6 sisters, 5 of which stayed in ENG.Ethel died in Rochester, NY Nov. 20,1933 at age 38.
Her mother was Jenny Geddes, married a James Aitken had a pub near the water in Gateshead as far as we know, and they had a large family together.
Would love to hear from any family out there, descendants, etc still in the area or anyone that might be connected or know anything about them. thanks!
