my aunt sent me copy of passanger details of eva's sister ruby watson who was onboard with eva john and robert i think my aunt had problems locating his birth also thanks :-)

So do you know roughly when Eva and Ruby were born, and where?
Jenson is Scandinavian, did they marry in this country?
Is this just co-incidence?

This Ruby?
Ruby E Watson
Arrival Date: 25 Sep 1956
/Nationality: British (English)
Place of Origin: Britain
Port of Departure: Southampton, England
Port of Arrival: New York, New York
Ship Name: Queen Elizabeth
Search Ship Database: Search the Queen Elizabeth in the 'Passenger Ships and Images' database

Ruby appears to be travelling with Norman V Watson, so if Ruby and Norman are married Ruby's maiden name is not Watson. So Eva P's maiden name is also not Watson?

Lisa Claire

patchem Report 17 Oct 2011 21:23

Do you know what part of the country Ruby was born in?
Could you put your grandfather's birth date and name, and his uncle's name and birth?


jax Report 17 Oct 2011 21:24
