Looking back at previous notes I also discounted a McArthur couple who lived in York Ontario

Roderick Mc Arthur and Helen A Scott who were married 16 October 1914 York Ontario.

Exactly - never say never.  Maybe a relative may read what has been written and come forward at a later date - very often happens.

Mothers Maiden Name Hughes  ???  Any connection  ??? Or just coincidence  ???



Does the name Mrs Delores Smith 3410 Creston Lansing Michigan mean anything  ???  She seemed to be the applicant for a U.S., Headstone Applications for Military Veterans, 1925-1963.


Immigration in the United States

In the mid-1880's, some states sent agents to Europe to attract settlers. Railroad companies did the same thing. Better conditions on ships and steep declines in travel time and fares made the voyage across the Atlantic Ocean easier and more affordable....................

The third wave was from 1881 to 1920. Almost 23 million immigrants poured into the United States from almost every area of the world. Until the 1880's, most newcomers still came from northern and western Europe. They came to be called old immigrants........................


At that time a lot of adverts were placed in UK newspapers for weavers in Massachusetts - perhaps that was the best/cheapest passenger fare William could get  ???

Massachusetts Naturalization Record - shows a William F Pashley - born 6 March 1862 Bradford York England - arriving Arrival date 1 May 1887 Philadelphia which could be the same one Maureen refers to

Petition Place Fall River, Bristol, Massachusetts. William was a weaver - residing 125 Eastern Avenue Fall River.

Witnesses he summoned on the petition were Samuel Morton 125 Eastern Avenue Fall River and William Whitaker 453 Pleasant Stret Fall River in the county of Bristol MA. 

Dated 25 th November 1892


The middle initial "F" was Frederick.
