United States 9th September re the research she is undertaking as follows:
'I am researching the Lidgett family from Nottinghamshire, England. Many of the Lidgett's from Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire imigrated to South Africa, Australia and America. Nathan and Mary Ann (Crossley) Lidgett arrived in America December 1849. Prior to imigration to America in 1849 the Lidgett name could of been "Liggett".
I am trying to find information on George and Mary (McIntosh) Lidgett. George, born and died in England, he was a sea captain, Mary was born in Scotland, died in England. They had 10 children: George b. 1767 married Ruth Mayfield, Sarah who married James Wright, William b. 1767 married Mary Lowthorp, Jane who married William G. Cumpston, Robert, John (could be Nathan's father), Mary who married John Leggatt, Elizabeth, Anne who married Samuel Hancock and Easter.
NOTE - WILLIAM G CUMPSTON WAS FATHER OF GEORGE LIDGETT CUMPSTON IN YELLOW BOX ABOVE.
