I'm not 100% sure that Annie was actually with him - can't find a shipping record for her. Maybe he just gave her name as nok and used his own address where he was staying.

MarieCeleste Report 20 Dec 2012 20:00

He travelled back to US without Annie:

New York, Passenger Lists, 1820-1957
Name: Thomas H Littlejohns
Arrival Date: 31 Aug 1913
Birth Date: abt 1886
Birth Location: England
Birth Location Other: gunnislake
Age: 27
Gender: Male
Ethnicity/ Nationality: English
Port of Departure: Southampton, England
Port of Arrival: New York, New York
Ship Name: Philadelphia

He was a miner, had lived Gunnislake, previously in US in 1913.

There is an "S" in the single or married column. Gives nok as mother Emily - there had been something else but was heavily crossed through.

He was going to friend Mr (but might be Mrs) Mason at 501 West Park, Butte City.

Thought he may be leading a double life but there are 2 with similar ages.
One married Ann and one married Sarah Ann

Unfortunately quite a few trees on ancestry have them mixed up

MarieCeleste Report 20 Dec 2012 20:28

I have a feeling that the 1913 shipping records may be for another Thomas Henry Littlejohns, there were several in the area of a similar age and many Cornish miners went to US.

I really think the marriage cert to Annie should be obtained to make sure we trace the right one.
