About Thomas Livesey

Thomas was born in Spotland, near Rochdale. We mistakenly thought Thomas' mother was at Braddock from Macclesfield. This has been proved wrong. Thomas married Mary Ann Gill in St. Louis, Missouri after joining the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints while in England. Mary Ann also joined this church in England. We believe he died in St. Louis and that Mary Ann and her family moved on with their fellow church members to Salt Lake City, Utah

We know details about Thomas' family from: Records of Mrs. Benjamin John Beer and Elizabeth Taylor Beer. Benjamin John Beer was the son of Mary Ann (Polly) Livesey.

Polly was the daughter of Thomas Livesey and Mary Ann Gill Livesey. Polly had her mother live with her when she was older and sick. Polly made sure her sons knew their history--hence the Beer Family Journal.

--Beer Family Journal:

Thomas Livesey had an older brother John who was in the lace business'. John had two daughters, Dian and Salina (Selina). We do not know John's wife's name.

Also, according to the Beer Family Journal, Thomas Livesey had three sisters-- Sarah Livesey Grove, Mary Livesey Bluer, and a Mrs. Thomas Simpson. Mrs. Thomas Simpson's children were Mary Ann, Elizabeth and some boys'.
