Hi,

Have had a look on he 1860 census for USA not found them. Looking at the childrens births Anna 1863 US, John E 1865 Grimsby they must have returned between these 2 dates. The incoming passenger list on Ancestry is from 1878-1960

There is a lone Robert Dent born abt 1831 on the New York passenger list

Arrival date 13 May 1853
Port of departure Liverpool
Destination New York
Ships name Southampton

Thank you very much for your help so quick as well.
the infomation on the date and place and the ship name will keep me busy there is a story there some were which I will atempt to put together

By a google search some months ago I also found that Amandas maidern name was Smith
but was not sure, this also had her marriage date that you also told me Dec 29th 1861 Warren is the same.

Amandas parents differ from the one you provided
it showed Thomas Smith and Mary Parents brothers Jeremia ,Samual, John, Isac, David , Zacharriah

Once againg thank you I would like to leave you some feed back or a nomination as i see there are awards as well how do I do this

Hi,

Sorry for the late reply. Do you think that they are the same couple or they are a identical couple?

In the 1850 census Amanda is with the same people as in 1860, and havn't had any luck tracing her siblings esp if they are old enough to work and leave home.

Please keep the forum updated with any feed back just post on this thread.
