In Aug 2019 it will be two hundred years since the Massacre at Peterloo. Lots of events will be taking place all over M/C and in many other places In Hyde one man was killed and over Tameside lots of people were injured Over the last few years I have been doing Joseph Johnson family tree as he was one of the speakers after finding he was the great great uncle of Canon Johnson who was a Christ Church Ashton there is a few bits not finished on it but one is I am trying to find a photo of Smedley Cottage Cheetham Hill M/C It was the home of the Johnson family Also The History Forum Group are also contributing to the event And would like to know if any one is related to any of the injured  and have had stories past down in the family and if they would mind sharing them you could always send me a private message if you don't want to share on line would be very grateful for any info Fudge
