Elizabeth seems to have remarried, (or at least engaged in partnership), to John Eakin. I still have not been able to find this marriage in the the index, but these are the census references from which the notion arises, and which are fairly conclusive:
19 Window Lane, Garston
John Eakin age 40, General Labourer, born Ireland
age 42, born Manchester
Edwin "Derrington" (stepson of John, therefore Elizabeth's son) age 21, born Staffs, Dudley
This, surely, is Edward Cherrington, William and Elizabeth's son?
Mary "Derrington" (stepdaughter of John ) age 19, Dom. Servant, born Staffs, Dudley
Similarly, I believe this is Mary Cherrington, William and Elizabeth's daughter
"Jane Derrington" (stepdaughter of John )age 7, born Garston
Similarly, I believe this is Jennet Cherrington, William and Elizabeth's daughter
Rebecca Eakin age 2, born Garston
Wm. John Eakin age 2 months, born Garston
19 Window Lane, Garston
John "Haken" (Eakin) age 50, Labourer Iron Foundry, born Ireland
Elizabeth "Haken" age 50, born Manchester
Rebecca "Haken" age 13, born Garston
Edward Cherrington, "son", age 32, Labourer Iron Foundry, born Yorks, Leeds
In 1892, Elizabeth's daughter, Janet, taking the name of her stepfather, 'Eakins', married Thomas Abbott (1866 - ), at St Catherine's Edge Hill. Thomas was brother to Richard Edward Abbott (1858 - 1897), husband of Elizabeth's daughter, Mary Cherrington (1864 - 1919)
Elizabeth Eakin, (née McGuinness, formerly Cherrington), was buried at St Michael's, Garston, on 9th November 1896.
In the register, her age is given as 55 yrs and she was living at 16 Window Lane, Garston.
By 1901, John Eakin was on his own, age 57, at 16 Window Lane, with daughter Rebecca, (now Twist) and her husband Joseph and their son John aged 3 months)
[Rebecca and husband were still at the same address in 1911, but son John had died. They had a daughter, Elizabeth, aged 7]
[Joseph Smith Deam Twist was brother of John Twist, who was married to Sarah Cherrington Abbott (1882 - ), daughter of Richard Edward Abbott (1858 - 1897) ]
