Nicholas and Charlotte Sampson from Cornwall
« on: Tuesday 31 July 12 19:31 BST (UK) »
Looking for any info .Looks like they came  and settled in the U.S.A circa 1898 after coming over on the Rhynland with daughter Jennie.They had  two other daughters called Lottie and Hilda who seem to have travelled over on a previous voyage in 1896(The Waesland).
Searching on"Family Search",the 1900 census seems to show them in Upper Darby township in Delaware,Pennsylvania,but with quite a few mistakes regarding name spelling,dates and no sign of little Jennie.The marriage year adds up though.
 In 1910,looks like they are in Camden ward, Camden NewJersey,but shows Charlotte as a widow and still no signs of Jennie.Can anyone shed some light on this please?
 Would like to know what happened to them especially Nicholas,as he was a captain in the merchant navy.Did he carry on this employment and did he die doing this job?
  Many thanks in anticipation,
               Brian.

The 1906 Camden, New Jersey city directory has Charlotte Sampson, widow of Nicholas, living at 426 Linden.  The 1931 Camden city directory has her at the same address, and Hilda Sampson, stenographer, is also at that address.

There is a death index for Delaware Co. Pennsylvania here:   http://w01.co.delaware.pa.us/Archives/deatharchives.asp  
I didn't see any likely matches for Nicholas, though.

There are death records for the city of Camden here:  
http://www.ci.camden.nj.us/city/genealogy.html  Unfortunately, they don't seem to have an index, so it would involve paging through to try to find him.
