Just seen your information about Frederick.  I do have birth records of their brother Frederick but hadn't followed his life through to America.
Thank you, Sandra

Those links to Census records will be very useful.
Thomas died in 1877 so yes Eliza would have been a widow by 1880 census.
I find it interesting that Thomas and Eliza emigrated in their 50's.

Amazing how many under took the journey in the early 1800's.

Can't see Henry Moss after 1850 - ancestry tree says he died in Australia but no sources, date or info

I saw that Henry died in Tasmania in 1866 but haven't found migration to Australia or death record.  He is in England in 1841 census with his parents. He was 21 then and might have stayed in England but I haven't yet looked for him in England - next job to do!

This branch of the family is interesting. Eliza's brother James emigrated to Canada with his second wife who he described as a "perfectionist " in a census record in the religion column.  He left behind my great-great-grandmother - his illegitimate daughter whose mother was his servant.  Most of my ancestors stayed in the county they were born in or only moved just over the border to the next county.
