My great-grandmother Christiana Askew, wife of George, had a daughter Mary
born 1865 at Plashetts North Farm and a son Joseph born 1867 at Falstone.
The FHC list these as in the Bellingham region but neither period is covered
by the NDFHS records of Bellingham. I had always thought George to be an
aglab or slater but your mention of a mine there is interesting. Would that
be for lead or coal?
Thanks, Alex
