United States of America / Re: Naturalization Record
« on: Yesterday at 16:19 »
Ian
One of the boarding houses on the 1870 has a list of boarders, the other not, if I am reading them correctly, so what if Charles and family lived at one address while running the boarding house at the other. Not sure of the mechanics of the US census and how it is compiled, but could this explain, if they are the same family how they can appear twice on the same census?

Looking at the census dates, the one with Ann Graff was taken 26 Jul 1870, but the other was apparently taken in January 1871 - you need to scroll about a bit to confirm the date, but here's one page that shows it:

Im not sure if or where this fits in, but there is a passenger list in 1874 for the ship Mosel, sailing to New York from Bremen, which includes these passengers:

Anna Henning 40
Anny Henning 8
Josephine Henning 7

There are columns for 'country to which they severally belong' and 'country to which they intend to become inhabitants', and for each the answer is United States of America.

The city directories I mentioned on the earlier thread have Charles Henning bdgh (boarding house) at 9 Carlisle in 1872 and at 179 Cherry in 1876. 

The 1880 census pages are out of order - Charles, Annie & Annie are on page 12 at 179 Cherry Street, but you have to skip a few pages forward to get to page 13.  The top of that page shows Henning Joseph (forename then crossed out) daughter, aged 13.   This ties in with family living at 9 Carlisle in 1870.

Leicestershire / Re: Baptism of Joseph SKETCHLEY baptised 1810 - 1815
« on: Tuesday 17 April 18 20:56 BST (UK)  »
Thomas Sketchley baptised 27 Feb 1828 at Whitwick, baseborn son of Sarah Sketchley, Lace Maker, Swannington.

This could be the Sarah Sketchley aged 53, head of household at Farm Town, Coleorton in 1851, who is shown as a sister to 'your' Joseph. 

If the family was at Swannington in 1828 then this burial at Whitwick may be Joseph's father, although the age is out.

14 Apr 1833 Thomas Sketchley, Swannington, aged 57.

There is also this burial at St George's Chapel, Whitwick:

3 Jul 1850 Rebecca Sketchley of Farm Town, Coleorton, aged 71.

ADDED: This may be the Rebecca Sketchley who was in Ravenstone Hospital in 1841, aged 60.  Also at the hospital was a 13-year old Thomas Sketchley.

I have heard back regarding the 1868 naturalization record  and there is no more information than what is shown.
Oh that's a shame. 

I agree that it's all circumstantial at the moment, although the marriage of Annie in New York & then her turning up in Kearny, New Jersey - where a Charles Henning died - certainly seems to support the NY & NJ families being the same people, especially with her husband being a sea captain.   Do let us know if the death certificate turns up anything - I think we're all willing this to be the right person!

Just following up on the two daughters shown in the US census, there is a marriage on 21 Nov 1880 between Annie P Henning & Archibald Robertson.   Annie is 17 and her parents are Charles Henning & Ann M Graff:

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:24S9-39Q

By 1900 she is 36 (but gives year of birth as 1853 so has been transcribed as older) and is living in Kearny, New Jersey with husband Archibald & 5 children - all born NY (Edit - youngest child born New Jersey) - and gives her father's birth place as Norway.  Also living with them is her widowed mother, Annie Henning, born Holland.

Added: According to a tree on Anc* daughter Annie's full name was Annie Margarita Peters Henning, although there is no source for this.  There is a link to a clipping of her obituary in the Winnipeg Tribune dated 10 Dec 1941.
