A Memory of Ashton

My 5 x great uncle was a policemen abt 1906. He died chasing robbers who were throwing stones. He was 28 yrs old & left a pregnant wife who gave birth in the same yr. We have a few photos of him. He was born in Staffordshire & his widow must have had her family follow him there. There is also a newspaper clipping of him as he rescued a runaway horse.
