Thanks gibbo.

That's another family in my tree from Wales who spent some time in Michigan. All to do with steel making and related things such as foundries.

Mining for iron and copper in that state but I don't think they went over there to be miners.

Marion is probably from Scotland.


I'm in the middle of doing sweat & sour stir fry chicken for tonight.

I got the impression from the above and the passenger list that the father didnt turn up here. I havent checked for a death for him as yet.

Thanks gibbo.

Mother and sisters so that should be George plus at least three others in 1910 but there seems to be only George and 2 others.

Mother is Eva so Clara must be one of the sisters.
