Hi Lorraine,
Thanks once again for doing this,
Alexander's sister's name was Margaret Good, she went to Canada in 1905 with husband and children and living in Ontario.
The passenger list you found looks quite promising but I have never been able to find a marraige for Alexander in Scotland.

Linda Report 12 Aug 2009 04:27

Hi lorraine, thanks for the offer. My gt gt grandfather william cushion walker was born in 1849/50 to william walker and sarah nee cushion somewhere in mississippi. The odd thing is they (william and sarah) were married in the UK in 1849, apparently travelled to america and are back on the 1851 uk census with young william. I haven't been able to find either their passage or his birth details, so anything would be fantastic. Regards Linda :)


Stephen Report 12 Aug 2009 08:33

Dear Lorraine
I have an Eva Jane Skelton (Holland) born 1882 Berkshire. I understand she emigrated to Canada in the late 1950s and died in Oct 1965 in Sark. Canada but have no evidence can you help?
Her daughter Eva Annie Tweddell (Skelton/Williamson) had emigrated in Jul 1954 to Saskatchewan, Canada with her husband Frank and two children Marion and Roger. She died in Fort Qu'Appelle in 1997, Frank had passed away in 1977. Roger changed his name to Roger Daniel Williamson in 1996 and i think died the next year. Marion died in July 1999.
Any information/evidence you could help with would be of a great help.


MargaretRose Report 12 Aug 2009 10:24

Hi Lorrain, re my Patrick J Grant, that sounds very hopeful. Only thing I've got for him I'm afraid is a record of his birth.

He was born in Belfast June 1878. He is the brother of my ggrandmother Julia Grant born October 1879. Mother and father Owen Grant and Ann Carroll.

I had heard that Julia emigrated to America but I haven't been able to find anything on her. She may have been married before she went if she did go to the States of course and I have no married name. She lived in Glasgow 1903 and her address given as Glasgow Caledonian Central Station hotel where she was a domestic servant.

many thanks to you looks like it could be him. Could you give me a way of following up that entry?


Angela Report 12 Aug 2009 13:27

Hi Lorraine

thank you so much for your efforts. I could not believe it when I read your message that you had found an entry for
Wolstenholme Gwynne Parr born in 1887 in Gateshead travelling to new york.
Well he is my relation as well and I had no idea he went to america.would it be possible to give me the information you found about him. and if he travelled with his wife Eliza.
He was born in Gateshead in 1887 and married Eliza Jeffries in sunderland in 1911
thank you so much for your help
love Angela

Hi Lorraine,
I wonder if you have access to the 1930 census for U,S.A.
I am looking for Arthur Good b. 1903 Scotland and died 1982 in Florida.
I know he emigrated to Canada , he is on the 1911 Census there with his family, then went to the states, not sure when, his brother went in 1922 maybe he went with him then, any information on him would be great.
thank you
His brother's name is Edward Good, b. 1897 scotland.


MargaretRose Report 12 Aug 2009 15:42

do you think there's any way of finding a place of birth for that Patrick J Grant? I know he was born Belfast and his exact date of birth is 15 July 1878.

many thanks for your time, you're a star doing all those look-ups - well done. Everyone so appreciative of your efforts.
