The family tree of James Halstead and Elizabeth LEAVER

As an addition to the blog of the 24th March 2011 about the family tree of James Halstead and Elizabeth LEAVER I discover yet another family that can be linked into the tree.

This is the family of William HALSTEAD and Alice LANCASTER who currently appear as the progenators of Lacnashire Chart 6. They will be incorporated into Chart 10 and chart 6 will be removed.

This brings the total number of people in chart 10 to over 500.

The family tree of James Halstead and Elizabeth LEAVER

Whilst investigating another family I discovered a granddaughter Deborah SHACKLETON. Investigating in the family trees in Ancestry I found Deborah and the tree on Ancestry gave me the information to be able to take the tree of James HALSTEAD (1818-1878) back a further two generations as well as linking many other families into the overall tree.

James is currently shown as the head of chart 10. The head of this chart now becomes William HALSTEAD (1750-1840). William married Agnes SAGER in 1773 and their known children are John, James and Peggy HALSTEAD

The revised chart 10 now has 250+ people and will be included in the next website update
