Hi,
No I don't think that is the right family,

William H veysey emigrates to America in 1893, and marries my grand aunt Charlotte Smith and they are in America in every census until his death in 1946.

Yes, that looks right Potty.

Mark - you're welcome re: the pointers but we could try to help further if you answer what's been asked, i.e. "you haven't said which census you want to find them in - England or US? Which years?"
