Mary Beech (Audley) was my great grandmother. Her family added the Audley to their name when they came to the US in about 1846 from either England or Ireland. My mother told me that her grandmother ( Mary B ) talked about an Audley Castle. There is an Audley Castle in County Down, Ireland and there is also an Audley End House in Saffon Walden, England. My great grandmother was the youngest in a family of ten children. She married a man by the name of Branch who died within five years of the marriage. There were two daughters and twin sons who died in birth after their father's death. The oldest girl was named Ellinor, born 1859, married a Russell. Oldest son was named B.E. Russell and attended the Colorado School of Mining. The youngest son was an artist. The other daughter ( my grandmother ) named Georgia Mary, 1861-1918. She married Perry Allen Oakes and produced three girls Mary (my mother), Ellinor who married a Hopkin, and Ruth.My greatgrandmother remarried a man named Elliot. I believed she lived in Whitewater, Wis. as a young woman. She and her new husband moved to North Dakota and later to Everett, Wash. She was burned to death at her daughter Ellinor's house in LaCrosse, Wis. in 1907. Does any of this sound familiar to anyone out there? I've just started to trace this side of the family, but my information is sketchy. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me add to the pieces.
