Jerome Beechinor arrival prior to 1850 NYC
« on: Thursday 06 September 18 09:06 BST (UK) »
I'm looking to find the entry of a Jerome Beechinor into the USA. He's on the 1850 census aged 17 so born 1833 and he's present with the family in the census of 1855 and 1860 as well as in 1870 but at another address and now with his wife. He dies in 1873 and his obit says he is the eldest son of John and Ann Beechinor.

I have John and Ann's entry with 7 of their 8 children on board the Sardinia 17 July 1848. But there's no Jerome.

I can't find an entry record for him prior to 1850. It's possible he arrived with a cousin William Beechinor (b1827) who is listed with the family in 1850 but also doesn't appear on the 1848 manifest.

The Beechinors originated from County Cork, Ireland.

I have all the family info and just need an entry.
