hi astre thanks for info think this could be my edward how do i trace him in america thanks paul

I've looked for him on the US census records Paul but have been unable to find any trace of him unfortunately. There is no trace of a marriage or a death either. He may, of course have moved on to another Country.

Although I have just found this

Edwd Fenlon, "United Kingdom, Merchant Navy Seamen Records, 1835-1941"

name Edwd Fenlon
event type Military Service
event year range 1918-1921
event place United Kingdom
birthplace Lancashire
birth year 1886
digital folder number

So it appears he was in the Merchant Navy. This is the same record from FMP which confirms it is the right man.
