Oxfordshire / Re: Missing generation can you help

Hi Janet

Relationships are not given in the 1841 census, so it's impossible to tell from that entry whether he was a son or grandson of Timothy and Harriot.

Henry Moss might be a clue - no proof of course that he's a brother of Sarah, but he might be.

In 1851 Henry, aged 11, is living as a son of Jane Berry, 32 (married, but head of household) in Handborough, Oxon.  Others in the family are Jane's daughter Mary Ann Moss, 9, son William Moss, 7, and daughter Elizabeth Berry, 2.  All except young Elizabeth (b Handborough) are listed as born in Stonesfield.

HO107/1731 folio 19 p5

Edited to add: this makes Jane look rather young to be Sarah Moss' mother, though not impossible I suppose.

I have found Jacob B. Keener in 1900 (I'm pretty sure it's Keener rather than Keever, and it is transcribed as such in 1900 and 1910). He's in York Ward 12, York, Pennsylvania with wife Sarah plus 2 sons and a grandson. Unfortunately the Williams family are not there.

Roger, I've sent 1910 (2 pages), 1920 and 1930 to the e-mail address you provided in your PM.

1900 still proving elusive.  They are definitely not in the (tiny) fragments left of 1890.

Hello again Roger,

www.castlegarden.org is a good site for New York immigrations.  He could be the Philip Williams aged 22, blacksmith, shown as arriving on the City of New York from England on 20 Mar 1882.

www.vitalrec.com is a good site for US vital records, including naturalization papers.  There's no central US vital records registry; it is all done by state.  It looks as though New York (and perhaps Cayuga County) would be a good starting place for you; details of how to contact the relevant offices are on that website.

I've spent quite a lot of time searching for pre-1920 entries for your people, but with no success yet. I've got pressing work deadlines but may be able to have another try for you later.

Hello Roger,

You don't ask for 1930 so perhaps you have it already? But if not this family may be of interest:

Auburn City, Cayuga Cty, New York, 1930:

Philip J. Williams head - aged 70 - age at first marriage 29 - born in England of English parents - immigrated 1882 but not naturalised - no occupation

Lottie E. Williams - wife - aged 65 - age at first marriage 24 - born in Pennsylvania of Pennsylvanian parents - no occupation

John R. Williams - son - aged 22 - single - born in New York [State] - professor in a theological seminary.

Other info - the family is living in a home which they own, worth $6,000, which is not a farm; they own a radio set (!); and they can all read and write.

The 1890 US census was destroyed by fire.  I will see if I can find this family in 1900-1920.

Gloucestershire / Re: Where do I go next?

Wow - good old Auntie Eunice!

Here's a death which might well be him: Kenneth E. Austin Q1 1952 Gloucester R. 7b 528 aged 29. Did Auntie E. give any clues as to why he died so young? At least the death certificate will certainly tell you that.

Both his birth and marriage certificates *should* give the name and occupation of his father (though if illegitimate the info might be missing).

Let us know what you find out  :)
