Hi Pat
Thanks for that info have been in contact and apparently they went to Ohio in 1872 that is Richard his wife and 4 children i have no records for this . His Son William went over in 1870 then his brother Thomas went in 1871.
As I say no records for any of this information if anyone can help me with the new info not sure which children went.
Richard Towns died in 1873 in Hardin County Ohio United States.
Thanks
