Great-Great-Great grandmother Lydia has been a bit of a puzzle. It's embarrassing to admit that it took many, many months for me to realize that her marriage to John Hughes clearly said she was a widow.... [Duh: No wonder looking for Hughes/Crummet marriages had yielded absolutely nothing anywhere!]
Then, it took quite a while to find her first marriage:
Their (only?) child, Anne Crummet, was baptized 31 Mar 1822 in St. Leonard's, Bilston, Staffordshire [ FHL # 1,040,824, Item 3, p.27]:
British Isles Family History Society gave me the confidence I needed!
I am in the process of tracing Anne Crummet for descendants: new cousins on the horizon???
It's only about 7 miles from Wolverhampton to Tipton, and Bilston is just about half-way.
I must read documents very, very carefully and repeatedly -- especially if I'm not making any progress! And, unfortunately it seems, this is not the first time I've blogged this conclusion....
Joining a genealogy society and using their services can be incredibly helpful!
