Gadsby1950'sLeedsCarmel McMullen I have a letter written to my husband's grandmother which mentions aunt Nan being in her 90's and living with the writer's sister in Leeds. We know aunt Nan (Sarah Hannah Gadsby) was born 1861 and think she died about 1958-1959 certainly after a cousin visited from Australia in 1856. Because of her age there may have been something in a local paper when she died.
