This past week has been a mix of highs and lows. I have located nearly all of my Great-Granddad's family (all of his brother's family - Glossop, Clark & Beverstock). I now need to track down his sister's family (McLachlan). This was the highs of the week.
In regard to Thomas' medals I had a mix of great highs and lows. I discovered that his brother Charles took loving care of them. Unfortunately after Charles died in 1969, no-one seems to know what happened to them.
I still hold some sort of hope that some day, by some miracle I will hopefully find them.
