I was interested to see the photo of a group of 3 girls named in the text as Annie Leaver, Nanny Jackson, Alice Sutcliffe. The photo is located in the Briercliffe groups selection. Does anyone happen to know more about the Annie in the photo, date of birth, parents etc. My husband\'s maternal grandmother was an Annie Leaver - she was born 1875 and married Albert Holmes. but i know there are other Annies in the family. Just hoping it might be ours as we have no family photos and it would be nice to know what our Annie looked like.

This is the photo in question. http://www.briercliffesociety.co.uk/Pho ... Girls1.htm

I emailed Mavis, the submitter and her repsonse was
The photo that you asked about, my Auntie Nanny was the one in the middle and the photograph came from Nanny’s sister Hannah. Do you remember we thought the three girls were on the following photograph which I thought looked like it could be a Sunday School class perhaps but I do not know. I don’t think it is the same Annie Leaver as my Auntie Nanny was born in 1904. But my Grandmothers side were called Leaver and I know there are quite a lot of them around Briercliffe.
