Frain/Wilson Look up please


Active member
I am so very confused.

I understand that on the 1901 census, Hugh Frain is listed as being HoH in Baker St. Leigh. Also listed is Isabella Wilson, aged 15 as his sister. I am not sure how she can be.

I see she is listed in the 1891 census aged 5 and the 1911 census aged 25 but I have no idea of where she lived or who with. I am also intrigued as to who her parents are? She was born in 1886, listed as Factory Yard, Leigh.

As far as Hugh Frain is concerned (he is the one that I was researching), I am at a loss of where he was born, his parents, brothers or sisters names etc.

I know he came from Sligo and was born in 1869 (he is my gr,grandfather). He left my gr,grandmother around 1904 and arrived on Ellis Island 1/5/1905 and was headed to stay with his sister, listed as Miss Frain!! He applied for american citizenship in 1919 which was granted. From there on it gets confusing.

Any help, or advice would be greatly appreciated.
