Tennessee Ainscough

Hi all
At one time or another you have all mailed me via my Ainscough History blog with information or requests regarding a Peter or Thomas Ainscough, Lostock, Lancashire emigrating to Tennessee. Ive had a little time to trawl through the information you have sent me and it seems you all share a common ancestry - I wondered if you had managed to contact each other to discuss this further???
To make things simpler Ive included the texts from the blog below, making bold and larger the common information and also included email addresses. I'm blogging this so that others can see the common link more easily should they come looking for information. Please let me know how you get on - you may know each other already.....if anybody has any additional information on any of this Lostock Ainscough connection then please get in touch.

Greatgrandfather, Peter Ainscough was from Bolton, Lancashire. Born 21 May1856? Married Hannah Partington (16 Nov 1856-April 1926)
They came to states in 1881 with 3 children. The oldest Thomas was my grandfather. Came over on the ship City of Rome. Family settled in Tennessee. Peter died 9 JUN 1954 at 98 yrs old. not bad for a coal miner. Thomas m. Lillie Grace Ritter in 1900, came to Indiana thereafter. They had 11 children. 7 girls and 4 boys. My mother Rita was one of the daughters. Am interested in finding Peter's and Hannah's parents and anything else to help.

Peter Ainscough 1856 & Hannah Partington 1856
I have had such a tough time with my husbands ainscough family living here in the US. I had gotten back as far as a Thomas Ainscough born in Lostock, Lancashire, England between 1821-1825, we believe he was married to a Hannah Dickenson b. Great Bolch or Bolton, England
His children were John, Rosette, Mary, Helen "Ellen", Peter, Thomas, William, James Huey and Hannah. Nothing much yet on their spouses except for Peter who married Hannah "Anna" Partington. They are buried in Coalfield, Tennesee; John who married Elizabeth Bramley; Mary who married a John Roscow or Samuel Darbyshire.
Peter Ainscough b. 21 may 1856 Lostock, Lanchashire, England and Hannah Partington b. bet 1856-1858 Possibly in Westhoughton, Lancashire, England were married 10 Jun 1876 iBolton, Le Moors, Lancashire, England, they had a Thomas, John, Ellen, Margaret, Hannah "Anna", Sarah Alice, Peter, Henry, all were born in the States except for Thomas, John and Ellen.
I am hoping more Ainscough decendants start adding to more genealogy sites on the net.

Frances Pauline Ainscough b.1923 - d. March 26th 2009
Hi Barbara,
Wasn’t sure if this info would help anyone but figured I’d pass it on. My Grandmother passed away yesterday and the obituary contains some genealogy info. Frances Pauline Ainscough was married to Ermal Elmore Ainscough born 27th September, 1920, died 3rd October 1969. His father was Thomas Ainscough who married Lillie Grace Ritter born 23rd October, 1878 in Coalfield Tennessee.
