I am looking for anything on a Emelette Aquilla DOAR (b c1857, Stanton by Dale, d. of William & Sarah - nee BAGULEY) who married George ANDREW, an Ilkeston Ironmonger in 1879. She died in 1922 and was buried in Ilkeston Cemetery where a MI survives. I am particularly interested in connecting her with the Beeston DOARs.
