This is in my series "James and Maria: The Story of Their Ancestors and Descendants" and focuses on thei large family of eight surviving sons and one daughter, born to my great grandparents, James Danson and Maria Rawcliffe of Poulton-le-Fylde, Lancashire with the ever present theme the First World War in which two sons died.
I must admit it has taken a long time to get to this stage. I was shocked to discover that Part 1 - The Rawcliffe Story was completed in 2005 - I never realised it was that long ago, followed by Part 2 - Danson Ancestors and Part 3 - Danson Sidelines. However once I discovered the exciting pastime of blogging and www.geneabloggers.com, that has tended to take over my writing energies, and the narrative went on the back burner.
