Missing East Midlands Pit

Thoresby (still open)... my dad worked there till he retired in 1982

I am my dad telling me not to go down t`pit.
And Wadenhoe, Northamptonshire every August when I remember marrying my fantastic wife.
I am my Canadian third great grandmother and my second great grandmother who survived for twenty years in the workhouse.  
I am genealogy and mathematics and Tabitha, my granddaughter.
