hello to 'gatewood' surfers. I am back looking for my ancestors again. I have tracked a WILLIAM ALEXANDER GATEWOOD who died in an asylum in in Lancaster in 1903. On his death certificate it says he had been a Steward. He has also appeared as an A.B.Seaman on a U.K. CENSUS.
Also , one document I have states that he was born in the U.S.A., Chaleston, South Carolina.
Despite all this,I have a problem in verifying whether I have the right Gatewood as some of the Census and church records seem to be ambiguous. I seem to have two William Alexander gatewoods and Eleanor Rigbys running together!!!
And how and when did he arrive in England,at Liverpool.
