Joseph & Christiana SHELDON

Kathleen Broadbent emailed this photo and says:
I believe this photograph to be my Great Great Grandmother, Christiana Sheldon (nee Wilson) and her second husband, Joseph Sheldon. Christiana was the daughter of Joseph and Mary (nee Brelsford) Wilson, christened 28 February 1830. Christiana married Samuel Sheldon on 12 November 1851. They both lived in Middleton. Samuel Sheldon died aged 40 and was buried 21 August 1867. Christiana married Samuel's brother Joseph. This was Joseph's third marriage. Both Samuel and Joseph were lead miners.
