Edward Edmunds and family in America 1894 onwards
« on: Sunday 03 December 17 12:59 GMT (UK) »
Hello

Wondering if anyone can help. It seems one of my relatives, Edward Edmunds (born 1838 Aberdare) sailed to America in 1894 arriving in Ellis Island on-board the Teutonic 15Nov1894. Edward's wife Margaret (nee Stone) was not with him, but sons and daughters Mary Jane (25) (listed as wife, but in fact is daughter), Gomer (21), Gladys 13, Albert (11) and Fred (7) were with him. Margaret must have joined later as she is mentioned in Pennsylvania death Records for Edward (1906-1964) that I don't have access to. There is also an application by Edward Edmunds for US passport 1795-1925 which may be him, but again I don't have access to these records

Regards

Roy
