William Weights (2) Died:


1: At the time of their marriage Joseph was living at Pleasant Street and Sarah was living at Nile Street.
2: As their first child, William, was born a little more than 4 months after their wedding, it would seem that Sarah Place was visibly pregnant when she married Joseph Weights.
3: In his Will dated 1895 Joseph mentions his five children, James, Robert, Richard, Samuel & William. The fact that he does not mention his daughter Sarah Ann leads me to believe that she died before him.
4: Some of the above information was kindly provided by Jane Berry, a descendant of Joseph Weights Sr., with additional information taken from the Marriage and Baptism Registers from St. John's Church and the burial registers of Preston Cemetery held on microfilm at the Lancashire Record Office.
