Are you looking for details of them both in America or in England?
When would they have gone to America and would they have travelled together? You can check index (free) at www.findmypast.com to see if you get a year for them leaving the U.K.
1930 is the latest available U.S. census- if they were in U.S. before 1930 you can search www.ancestry.com (although you need a subscription to view the details you can often get quite a bit by gradually narrowing down the search criteria).
Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!

Sorry to be so long in replying (Christmas holiday, etc.).   Ivy Ashworth was her unmarried name, but Clara Keane was married with 3 children.   I am waiting for more information and also a photo of Clara from a relative, so please be patient with me.   
I am grateful for the advice and interest.

Best wishes for 2009 - Margaretmarion

Thank you for the information regarding the birth of Ivy Ashworth and the date of arrival in the US.   I am interested in any news of them/their descendants in Connecticut.   I know that Clara Keane had 3 children and am awaiting a photo and more information on them.   I shall post the information as soon as it arrives.

Just to throw a spanner or two in the works-

SS Scythia arrived Jan 20 1922 at New York
Ivy Ashworth aunt Clara Keane 1777 Thomaston  Watewell ??? Connecticut

Birth of Ivy Ashworth registered 2nd Quarter 1910 at Rochdale

Passenger manifest says Ivy is age 17 (born c1905) and going to Mrs. J.R. [Clara] Keane, Friend [Aunt] 1777 Homeston Ave Waterbury [Conn] - words in brackets have been handwritten to typed manifest. Aunt's address is prbably Thomaston Ave. in Waterbury, Connecticut.

Next problem-
1930 USA census - Union City New Jersey
William Keane Head 57 married at 21 b Pennsylvania parents Irish
Clara Keane Wife 58 married at 21 b England parents English
Charles Keane s 26 single b New Jersey
George Keane s 25 b New Jersey
Mary Keane d 23 s b New Jersey
Olga  Keane d 16 b New Jersey

According to the above census Clara (wife of a William Keane) had 4 children all born in New Jersey (1904-1914).

If the Ivy Ashworth in shipping list is correct her age doesn't match up with birth registration found in England (in an earlier post). Also, Clara Keane's husband either William or J.R. Keane (?) and if Clara's children born 1904-1914 in N.J. and they are living in N.J. in 1930 is this Clara the one that Ivy Ashworth was going to stay with in Connecticut in 1922?

Hi,

This is getting more complicated by the minute !!

There are 2 Ivy Ashworth registered in Rochdale, 1 = 1st quarter of 1905 , 2 = 3rd quarter 1905.

According to SS Scythia's records the Ivy who arrived in New York in Jan 1922 gave as her nearest relative in the UK as her aunt  Mrs Mary E Lofthouse  19 Wilson Street, Rochdale.
