Randy Seaver has put out his Saturday night Genealogy fun challenge - Ahnentafel Roulette
To find our person: " (1) What year was your paternal grandfather born? Divide this number by 100 and round the number off to a whole number. This is your "roulette number."
2) Use your pedigree charts or your family tree genealogy software program to find the person with that number in your ancestral name list (some people call it an "ahnentafel"). Who is that person?
3) Tell us three facts about that person in your ancestral name list with the "roulette number."
Using the computation guidelines, my person of interest this evening is #19: Hannah Cowley, my great great grandmother.
I have written about Hannah Cowley and the process of finding the marriage registration for her second marriage to William Clifford in a blog post but I will give a little more information today. As per the instructions from Randy, we are to share three things about her.
1. Hannah Cowley, daughter of Thomas Cowley married first Charles Pugh 13 May 1850 at King Sutton's Northampton Parish Church.
2. In the 1851 census she is listed as Hannah Pugh, married woman and daughter in the home of Thomas Cowley in Donnington, Gloucestershire. She has a baby Mary Ann 6 months born in Donnington.
3. In the 1861 census, Hannah Pugh is in Maugersbury Workhouse, with two children: Mary 11 born at Donnington and Emily 10 months born at Maugersbury Workhouse. Hannah is listed as a pauper.
