Sue In Yorkshire. Report 11 May 2013 20:11

I am helping a friend to do her family tree.

Her great Aunt Caroline Wright born 1890 Leeds.went with her sister (Selina Stead)and brother in law (Matthew Stead) to USA aboard the Franconia departing Liverpool 29 April 1913 going to Boston USA.

What I would like the details of is

Did Caroline marry in USA ??

if not

then what year did she come back to England

I have looked and sent for 2 marriage certs in LEEDS England for a Caroline Wright(birth year above. But they are both wrong.

So if someone could please look for a marriage in USA for Caroline.

Thanks in Advance

Sue



I have just this problem to finish and then we will have all the info and I can pass it all to my friend.

Gender: Male
Ethnic Background: English
Port of Departure: Liverpool, England
Ship Name: Ivernia

Harry, a sawyer, has been crossed out but Albert, 17, a carter is still on the list.
They were going to Lawrence, Mass.
Harry's parents lived at 7 Wilson St, Leeds.
Albert's nearest relative looks like Father, Arthur Smith, 17 Wilson Street, Leeds.


Don't know why Albert has named his father as Arthur?

Maybe Mary Ann Smith nee Wright gave all the details and got her husbands names mixed up.
As her late husband was Arthur..

Sounds like a good reason Sue. Not finding anything on them though, which is very strange. Doesn't help with a name like Smith though!
