Irons family of Wilstead
« on: 22:59:31, 18/09/15 »
My Irons family goes back to Lemuel Irons born in Houghton Conquest, Bedfordshire, England 1785   He lived and is buried in Wilshampstead, Bedford, Bedfordshire 1864. About 12-15 years ago a very nice lady noted my searching in Wilstead and contacted me, She was living in Leicester at that time. She told me that she had a family book: Study of Genesis, by John Bunyan  in which  was listed the marriage of John Irons to Elizabeth at St Mary's church, Luton. A son William, I believe, was the father of Lemuel who is well documented.
Unfortunately  >:(  I have misplaced her name and contact. I would like to source this information and thank her. If anyone active in genealogy in your area may know a lady who is a descendant  of the Irons from Wilstead I will be greatly appreciative.
My great grandfather Thomas Irons came to Minnesota, USA about 1880.

Thank you Willis Irons
