More Ancestors

Recommended Posts

I, also, am looking for information about my ancestors. My great-grandfather, Henry "Harry" Gardner was born in Camboise on November 10, 1849. He came to the US sometime before the 1881 census because his wife, Alice Cole Gardner, is listed as head of the household in Bedlington. Shortly after that, she and their 5 children sailed to the United States. I am looking for any information on Henry and/or Alice. Alice's father was Thomas Cole and her mother is listed as Elizabeth.

Thank you

Karin (AKA ckegeneo)

This is an update to my last post.

I am looking for information on my g-grandfather, Henry “Harry” Gardner – said to be born November 10, 1849 in Camboise England. He married Alice Cole September (or August) 8, 1871 in Morpeth. He was a coal miner and they moved to Pennsylvania USA around 1881. The story goes that they moved because Alice couldn’t stand to see her 5 year old son, Harry, leaving for the mines while it was still dark dragging a lunch bucket that was as tall as he was. When they got to Pennsylvania, they only had the knowledge of one kind of trade – so they worked as coal miners!

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The only association of the name I can recall is that the stone building (now flats) just before the easterly entrance to Hollymount Square was originally "The Gardner's Arms" public house.

I know this because I've seen the title deeds to the property, though I'm no longer sure about the precise spelling.

The Gardeners Arms is now the vets at 74 Front St. E. I believe the original windows were removed to the Morpeth branch.

Yes, you may be right on that one, I could well have been thinking of the (much lesser known) Oddfellows Arms.

But, hasn't that vets now closed down too? I remember a closure notice on the door.

    • A big-hearted donation by one of South East Northumberland’s largest employers has enabled local football club, Bedlington Terriers FC, to provide its players, staff and visitors with rapid emergency response should it ever be needed.
      Lynemouth Power Station has gifted the community club with a life-saving heart defibrillator which will now be installed at the Welfare Park ground. If deployed within three to five minutes of a cardiac arrest, such equipment could potentially increase the chances of someone surviving a heart attack from six to 74 per cent. Each minute without CPR and defibrillation also reduces a patient’s survival rate by between seven and ten per cent.*
      The Northern League Division Two club is home to seven teams and over 80 footballers from senior players to an under 6 ‘tots’ team. Along with daily training sessions and match attendances, the club sees hundreds of people visiting the ground on a weekly basis therefore the defibrillator has been very well received by all.
      Rowan Edwards, Commercial Director of Bedlington Terriers FC, commented, “This is a vital piece of first aid equipment and we are extremely grateful to Lynemouth Power Station for their kind donation. Given the number of on-site staff, players training each week and visitors to the ground, it is essential that our trained staff have instant access to life-saving equipment in case of emergencies. It will mean a lot to everyone here at the club as well as the local community, so we’re very grateful for the power station’s support.”
      Janet Mole from Lynemouth Power Station added, “Having these devices installed in popular public places and venues is so important, so rather than just donate to the fundraising effort, we decided to purchase the equipment outright on behalf of the club. As a local employer, it is important that community initiatives like this are well supported so we’re delighted to hand over the defibrillator to all at the club.”
