bullet  General Notes:

From 1977 letter from Harriet Pick, Martha Ann had a 2nd hand clothing business.
Notes from Steve Pick 2004. I remember Uncle Herbert came a few times from Keighley to stay with us in Beach Crescent. I am sure I also remember going to Keighley and visiting his house there. Vague feeling I have was that it was a little somber dark and possibly an apartment. Maybe Bill Pick's diaries could shed further detail on the event. His death was probably around 1948, but can't be sure.
From Pam Colburns chart says he was a Lathe borer in tool shop.
