Thomas Farrington Middlesex Massachusetts
« on: Monday 05 March 12 17:25 GMT (UK) »
I would be grateful for any info from the USA about Thomas Farrington born 1875 in Brightlingsea in Essex.

He died 1925 at sea, and the entry in the English Probate Index indicates he lived in Cambridge, Middlesex, Massachusetts and left a widow Kate Elizabeth.

There is a memorial in Brightlingsea PArish Church to him, saying he was lost at sea from the SY Miramor off Savannah Light, USA on 30 Nov 1925, age 50.

I have him in England in 1881 age 5, but nothing after that.
So US censuses, passenger lists, marriage, children  - anything would be welcome.

Thank you.
