For an insight into the crossing check Robert Louis Stevenson's "An Amateur Emigrant!" from the Clyde to NY, available online!

Thanks, Sandra! I had the death record of William, but not Daniel's. Every little piece helps. I wish that death record had his parents or place of birth on it!

Was hoping to turn up more info on Daniel - date of birth varies so much, it is impossible to make any matches in Scotland.

Its not the name that is the problem.   :-\

Might be difficult finding the marriage (which might have told us Daniel's parents names)  - statewide registration in many states did not begin until 1880/1881

Could you try and locate an obituary for Daniel in Salamanca, Cattaraugus County New York - 1906
Or get the death certificate to see what information it may have regarding parents.
