John Shakespeare

Email from Colin and Stella Smith on 15 April 2002 to Graham George Hawker states:
It seems that we have common interest in the Shakespeare clan, my mother Joan (nee
Shakespeare) , father was John  1890- 1976
His father Daniel  1856 - 1950 ,Dudley,Worcester.
His father Daniel  1827 -    ?   ,       "             "
His father James  1808  - 1848
This info came from my mother, who lives in Yorkshire and seems too much to be just
coincidence .

This was then confirmed in an email on 6 May 2002 which states:
We have been in touch with colin's Mum and she confirms that the Daniel Shakespeare you
have on your family tree is her grandfather.
 
There are only a couple of things that she told us though, which differ from your pedigree.
On the 1861 census it shows Daniel Shakespeare living in Dudley, with wife Eliza (Price), son
James age 10, daughter Cecila (?) age 6, son Daniel age 4.  Daniel had four brothers, James,
John, Aaron and Luke.  
 
Aaron and his wife Esther and their adult daughter Esther and her son Bernard Moore went to
America on the Campania in February 1907.  They settled in Pittsburgh.  (I have photos of
Esther and her daughter and g/son, also of Bernard when they were in America and Esther jnr
when she joined the Salvation Army which I have sent you.)
 
John went to Toronto about 1885.  He married Francis Moore.  they moved to Illinois where
their children were born.  Haden 1889, Frances 1894, Leslie 1896 and Don 1899.    I will send
you a transcript of the Family History of John Shakespeare as written by Tom Stobbs,
Grandson of Daniel,m as soon as I can.
 
Daniel went to America for a short time, but found that the ups and downs of life there did not
suit him and he returned to England.   He married Ann Burns in 1890 but she died in 1895,
possibly in childbirth.  He remarried Elizabeth Perry and they had one daugher Miriam.  Ann
and Daniel had John, Catherine, & Alice.   As far as Colin's Mum knows he did not have any
other children, so we don't believe that Cecil and Ivy were his.   Possibly the inscription on the
back of the photo was correct and they belong to Daniel Clarke.
