Annie was my husband's great grandmother and mother of Emma Smith.
She was born to John and Sarah in Hulme, Lancashire in1846 and was baptised on 17th May at St Mary, St Denys and St George , Manchester Cathedral.
She married John Yates Smith on 2nd November 1863 at St Mary's, Manchester.
They had at least 7 children before John died in 1876.
In 1878 she gave birth to James, son of Charles Smith. I cannot find a record of the marriage. As they were both Smiths maybe they didn’t marry?
Annie and Charles had at least 3 children and the family were living at 38 Duke street, Newton, Lancashire at the time of the 1881 census. By 1891 they had moved to James Street, Collyhurst, Lancashire.
Annie was widowed by 1901 and was living in Thomas Street, Manchester with her daughter Emma and a lodger, John Patrice, who would later marry Emma.
She died in 1907 at the age of 61 and was buried on 28th November in Philips Park Cemetery, Manchester (K467)
