1887 Passenger list to USA
« on: Thursday 09 December 04 00:57 GMT (UK) »
Would anyone have have access to the passenger lists to the USA in 1887?

Trying to find possibly the name of the ship and any other information, the family consisted of

William Powell, Head, age 37, born Liverpool
Sarah Powell, Wife, age 35, born Staffordshire
Florence Powell, Dau, age 12, born Warwickshire
William Powell, son age 10, born Warwickshire

Hughes - Flinshire - Denbighshire -  Lancashire
Powell - Lancashire - Breconshire
Beard - Cheshire - Derbyshire
Cole - Abbotsham/Bideford - Devonshire
Rowe - Lancashire - Caernarvonshire
Meaker- Gloucestershire- Monmouth

Many thanks for this information, this is definitely the family.

I can only assume that William Powell  went before them or there might be some truth in that he worked on the Panama Canal.
 I will have to check that out and see if the time frame fits in.

Valerie,

Is it possible that the date listed in the arrivals in New York January 14 1889, could be 1887?

The reason I am querying it is that on the 1900 census Florence states that she immigrated 13 years ago in 1887.
