I'm running a reunion this autumn for the Irish side of my family. The "Americanized" version of our name is Beckwell, but it was originally Bakewell, and sifting through some old family letters and such, I found a reference to a Tessie Bakewell, proprietor of the Anglers' Arms.
We would love to get in touch with Tessie, and/or any of her children, both to connect with them as a family, and invite them to this reunion. If you know an e-mail address for any of them and can forward this, that would be great. Or perhaps you could pass along to me some contact information for them.
