Dear Annie, I know you've gone to meet all our ancestors. I wanted you to know how much I miss you, it hurts every day. Your letters succored me, helped me through all the rough times. It's best you're with Calvin again, you missed him more than you let us know. Annie, thanks again for the above information. It was that one piece of information we needed to jump to the other side of the "pond" to find all the rest of our people in England. I made a trip there with my husband. How I wished you had been with us when we found Peter and Mary's tombstone in the churchyard. I went back again some years later and it was broken in half. So grateful we found it before it was lost forever. The church in Corby Glen was built in the 1850's. With research, I found where the little Catholic chapel was where Peter and Mary were married in Irnham. The stones from that church were used to build the new one in Corby Glen. Give everyone a hug for me. Love, Teresa
TOMBSTONE: (St. Mary's Catholic Cem., Corby Glen, Lincoln, England, 1990)
Of your charity pray for the soul of Peter Cocks of Hawthorpe who died March 28, 1882 aged 75 years also of Mary Cocks, Peter's wife who died February 25, 1884 aged 73
