Yes Please I have been trying to track Salters down for some years. My
interest is Samuel Massey b1817, around Wincham, and his family.

Before emigrating he was apparently a teacher and preacher in the Helsby
area. Apparently there is a book Methodism in Helsby which refers to him but
I have not be able to loacte this either

Regards
Tony Barratt
PS
I have the press reports of his death in Montreal, if it is of use to
anybody
