can you tell me where he was born his parents names and his wifes name please will help me narrow him down on the passenger lists thanks


Lorraine Report 28 Jul 2010 01:34


i dont have access to 1911 maybe ask for a lookup or seeing as we cant find a death for him in usa take the chance and get the death cert in uk



Louise Report 27 Jul 2010 19:06

hi lorraine

i mis spelt his name should read James Milton



Louise Report 27 Jul 2010 19:04

if you have a chance could you check for james mitlon on passenger lists to Quebec. It is listed on but i do not have international coverage for the site. He was born in London /middx 9/8 1869 occupation gardener. The family believes he died after an accident involving a threshing machine but i have no concrete proof of this.

Is he perhaps listed i nthe 1911 canadian census? any help very much appreicated.

Hi Lorraine,

I can only view the free bit,

I did find a Cornelius Baker but he's in Glamorgan. His wife came from Monmouthshire, so I suppose he could have visited them prior to his visit to his mother and then died en-route.

Regards, Lou

i found him going back to usa in 1898 but i cant find anything on the incoming passenger list i dont know how complete they are, i also saw the death you mentioned have you looked for him on the uk 1911 census


Debbie Report 26 Jul 2010 11:59

Thank you Lorraine for the info on Dora Gardner

Hi Lorraine, could be any of the following;

Wife Lydia b 1850 Wales UK
son Arthur b 1872 Wales UK
son Edward b 1883 Pennsylvania USA

I know he came over in 1898 (I have those details -I think you gave them to me thanks ) just prior to his father's death. I found a Cornelius Baker's death in England in Kensington in Dec Q 1912 and as his mother died in 1912 wondered if he came over to see her and subsequently died here too.

Regards, Lou

He may be accompanied.

Many thanks once again,

Lorraine Report 23 Jul 2010 00:33


as far as i know all passengers are listed but may just be listed a mr or mrs kelman for example, He will be listed someone but unfortuantly i cant find him on the records i access to, maybe you could ask for a lookup for russian passenger lists on records thread, i couldnt see him before the 1891 either, so the time frame would be between 1882 and 1891 hope you find them good luck .


ElizabethK Report 22 Jul 2010 20:32

Hi Lorraine

I am back again !

Is there anything on these two marriages-Ontario Canada

Adolphe Debrusk and Mary Rousak=sometime 1850-1865-first child found born 1866

Michael Debrusk and Annie Sterzic-around 1890s ?



Susan Report 22 Jul 2010 12:37

Lorraine, thank you for your search.
Is it true that sometimes a group went on board and only one person was actually registered? or maybe he came over on freight not actually a lsited passenger? just a thought,
He does not appear on any UK Census before 1891. Don't tell me this is going to be yet another mystery and brickwall? lol


Lorraine Report 21 Jul 2010 23:40


sorry i cant find him on a passenger list at all, have even tried just seaching 1st name and nothing that fits


Susan Report 20 Jul 2010 12:08

yes, on certificate states fathers name also Lazarus, still alive and a farmer,

The name Adessa and Riga rings a bell?
