In Reply to: Re: Moorhouse Family Tree Liverpool/Kirkburton by Mark E. Moorhouse of 307

i am descended from Henry stirrup and Sarah Moorhouse through their daughter Gertrude, who was my grandmother . She married a Joseph Gaskell who died in WW1. They had two surviving children, Joseph and Sarah. Sarah was my mother.
I actually met Sarah Moorhouse,my great grandmother when a small child (I am 72) but only remember a very old lady in a big bed. I did know some of her other children,besides my grandmother. After she died three of SarahM's adult children lived together--Margaret, Gertrude and Frederick,as the two women were war widows and Frederick a bachelor. He too was a carter . I also remember Arthur and Albert and Elsie."Our Sairellen" who died in childbirth was often mentioned and the family bible shows other deceased siblings. Of course all of these are long gone now but I do have a few photos if you care to contact me via e-mail . verandave@
I have no information further back from Moorhouses arriving in Liverpool from Yorkshire so would be glad of any information re earlier Moorhouses. Regards vera chatterton.
