Married 1896 to Rosa (shown).
Diane Megannity writes:
My mother has a copy of this photograph in a family photograph album
of the large, leather-bound impressive kind. Rosa was sister to my
great-grandfather, Samuel Dennitts Spare. The Spare family came from
Uttoxeter, Staffordshire, and had links with Wirksworth. Rosa and Sam's
mother was Thirza Dennitts, sister to Anne Dennitts who married Samuel
Killer and lived in Wirksworth. Another sister, Louisa Lydia, married
Samuel Arthur Thompson of Sheffield; both of Arthur's parents were from
Wirksworth, namely William Thompson and Ann Houghton.
We believe Rosa and Abel later moved to Forest Town, Macclesfield.
Best wishes from Diane Megannity
