Admin reply: Hi, just seen your message. I know there's an Anne Owens who lives in Dean Road. She used to have a haberdashers shop in Ferryhill. If i remember rightly, her late husband was called Ronald. This might be who you are looking for. I'll get you her address and you can write to her.

Comments: Back in Feb 2008 I posted the below email in hopes of locating any distant relatives. If anyone has any information on anyone who may have known my mothers family or my mother please email me and let me know. Read my earlier email below. I would like to contact them as I've never met anyone on my mothers side of the family.
Marian My mother Dorothy Grayson was born in Ferryhill and I'm trying to find if she has any living relatives still living in Ferryhill. I never had the opportunity to meet any of her relative except her brother Harry Grayson. My mother passed away on October 12th, 2002 bless her soul. If anyone has any information about anyone who is related to my mother or knows of any of my mothers relatives please let me know by emailing me. My mohter married Albert Tammeorg who came from Estonia during WWII. I'll continue to check my emails with hopes someone will read this.
