Part 140c – Smith Robertson Genealogy – 1864 Birth - Great-Grandmother Mary Alice (née Crossley) Goodey

08 December 2009

Afternoon,

Following Part 132c, I’ve decided to begin presenting those documents I may have on file of my Crossley Line.

Today I’m beginning the ancestry of my maternal grandmother Madge (née Goodey) Robertson with her mother, my great-grandmother Mary Alice (née Crossley) Goodey.

The inserted picture of great-grandmother Mary Alice to the left may have been posed for around 1915 and 1917.

Great-grandmother Mary Alice Crossley was born the 23rd of December 1864. This Christmas would have been 145 years ago. Her parents were gg-grandparents William and Elizabeth (née Parker) Crossley.

I have included the Certified Copy of An Entry Of Birth number 425 which I obtained from the General Register Office in England.


My transcription –
