That's a great bit of detective work there Sandra! Seems like they only had Leonard after all. The American directories do seem to give you a lot of information. You are a star.  It's good to find out what happened to them - the wonders of technology. Thanks again.

Hi Sandra,
Great work with the Yeoman family - thanks.  I will have to print it out after i have digested it all! 
I had sort of came to a dead end with Jennie - the only info i found on her was the 1910 census in North Adamson Berkshire. She was living with John, Dorothy and her mother Jane Beveridge.  They must have moved and at the time i had so many leads to follow she probably slipped down the list.
I had great success with a librarian in East Hartford so i maybe will contact a librarian in Williamstown.
It was great to find Jane Beveridge on the census - she was my gt gt grandmother - and had left Scotland along with children David,Thomas,George,Jane(Jennie) and Catherine (Katie).  Her husband Thomas(their father) drowned in 1883 off the Bay of Biscay while working as a seaman. Whether they left because of this i am not sure.  Thomas and George are both together on a ship in 1882,and David in 1887 sailing to Boston.  Jane and the two girls turn up in 1900 in Adams. Jennie 22 and Katie 19. I can't find Katie again after this.  I  also never found Thomas which is why i started these postings.  I hope it is not too confusing!!
