William Powell - Emigration to USA
« on: Tuesday 04 January 05 01:56 GMT (UK) »
Trying to find the port and date of arrival in the United States for William Powell (DOB 1850)

William's wife, Sarah and their two children, Florence (1875) and Willie (1877) arrived in New York on January 14 1889 on the Britannic, without William Sr.

I can only assume that he must have came over before them in possibly 1888. All of the family finally settled in Wharton County, Texas.

Jennifer,

Excellent this is the information I required, many thanks.

Would there be by any chance a destination point in the United States where he was heading?
