William Battley

My thanks to Marie Foster of England, and to Noeleen Battley of Australia, for helping incite this deeper probe into the Battleys, and for the information, and photographs - we are all still adding to  it -  It is always wonderful to watch a family grow.- A point that I find Interesting here, from recent correspondence, is that while it can be -40 below here in January - Winnipeg, (Canada), at the same time Noeleen has it "very hot over here and lots of bush fires" in Australia, and Marie has it "cold and drizzly " in England, reminds me how ones roots can spread. - Bruce
