bacon, lyons, mcdonald familly search
does any one out there kno anything about a familly called bacon who resided in 16 comus st about 1903???. the head of the familly was henry bacon and his wife was mary, they had about 13 kids( no telly then) but mary was killed in a factory fire some time between 1903 and 1910, so the younger kids went in to care. i do kno that one of the daughters was called maggie, she later marreid and became lyons then re married and became mcdonald. she used to sell fruit and flowers on the pier head area. one of her sons was called frank mcdonald who i remember living in jason walk. i did hear that he was once the ladlord of the feathers on vauxhall rd. his his wife was called anne (ann alpen????) hopefully some one out theire knows something
many thanks, frank.

Mary A Lyons , born sept 1917, Toxteth Park .
mothers maiden name McDonald .
the only dates that i have so far is that in the 1901 census margret mcdonald was 8 so that means she would have been born in1893., so if the margaret that you have mentioned is the same one then she would have been 23. i am not sure of her husbands name . as far as dates go i only have dates regaurding where they lived. 1901, 26 thurlow, 1902/1903 gerard street. i do know that maggie used to sell flowers on london rd by whats now t.j.hughes (or was tjs)she also used to sell flowers and rock down by pier head as did many others, and out side one of the cemetarys by scottie rd. she later lived in or near the springfield gardens tennements off st annes street, whilst there she she used to be known for laying out the corpses. she had kids called francis tommy harry mary thereasa and whilst she was lyons a daughter called annie and i think her husband was alex lyons, maggie had a brother harry bacon who married agirl called mary and used to have the railway pub in edgehill. they had 2 kids called harry and mary. maggies best mate was a girl called bessie braddock, who i believe went on to become a labour m.p. in liverpool,( thats if my info is correct).
i have just joined ancestry.com so if i get any better dates i will let you know,
many thanks for your reply and interest....franck
