Sorry, hit the send button before I finished the posting.   Would appreciate any record of Daniel after he arrived in NY.

It says that he was going to join his father Richard Baines, 143 Greene St., Brooklyn, NY.  Do you know anything about what happened to his father?

Many thanks for responding, sadly the only information I have is in my initial posting, Daniel arriving in NY in 1906.   I was hoping he might be found in a census return or other family record.

If we can find more about his father, that might give us clues for where Daniel was. 

I didn't see any likely matches in census records for Daniel, but they're available at www.familysearch.org if you want to check.  You can also see the passenger list there.

There is a Daniel Baines who died in WWI - https://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=56239120  Have you ruled him out?

shelleyesq mentioned information about Daniel's father.    Information I have suggests Daniel's father was Richard Baines born c.1855 in Ireland.   Not much to go on, but it's all I have.

I've had a previous attempt to find Richard and Daniel but hope with the following information someone might be able to help me.

Richard Baines was born c.1855 in Ireland.  The 1891 census records him as a marine fireman,  living in Bootle (Liverpool) with wife, Sarah, born c.1856 in Liverpool, together with  several children.   The 1901 census records Daniel Baines born c.1891 in Bootle living in Southampton with three other siblings. 

Richard is not recorded in the 1901 census, his wife, Sarah, died in 1900 and family notes say (but without a date) Richard 'left Southampton to live in America'.  I cannot find Richard on Ellis Island records.  Richard was a seaman, perhaps he arrived in New York by other means.   Ellis Island records show Daniel Baines, age 15, arrived on board Philadelphia on 22 December 1906 - to join his father, Richard Baines, living at 97 Hall Street, Brooklyn.

I wonder if anyone has access to census/residential records that might help me to trace what happened  to Richard and Daniel?
