Searching for details of yet another Teasdale. On the 4th July 1838, 26 children were drowned in Huskar Pit Silkstone Barnsley. The inquest was held on the 12th July. There are many sites detailing the disaster itself but I am interested in the mention of a George H Teasdale who helped clean up the bodies. It mentions he and 2 others took the children to Throstle Hall Farm. I wonder if anyone can find more details about George. There is also a mention of a George H Teasdale who wrote a history of Coal in Silkstone in 1901. If it was same man he must have been some age then. Can anyone find mention of him in newspaper articles?
