Hello Peter,thanks for replying.I am interested in people who were friends, neighbours of my gt uncle,Wilson Akitt, and are mentioned in Across the Years.Joshua Jenkinson, was his uncle, from Cockermouth, Cumberland.Joshua's wife Augusta and daughter, Alberta, I know very little of. The Strachan family from Scotland all sailed over together and Norman was executor for Wilson's will.(1911 census)The Sewell family were in- laws, (1916census) One more family!!, the Sayers wrote very kindly about Wilson as their neighbour. That is more than enough,but to me it is so lovely to know that he had many good friends when his own family were far away. I often wonder if his son John Wilson Akitt ever visited? thankyou again, regards, carolyn.
