Very difficult to read a post when everything runs together without proper punctuation etc. and have no idea where on earth 'Little Falls' might be.

Her marriage certificate is likely to say her marriage status and possibly names of parents, etc. (depending on where marriage took place).
Passenger manifest would likely give marital status and possibly next of kin in U.K.
Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!

Christine53, how old were Joseph and Mary on the passenger list?

I have found a possible Mary Fitton on the census, but she is 5 years older than Joseph.


I have the ages now: Mary 36, Joseph 31 and Maggie 8

I think this may be Mary Fitton and she has a sister Maggie:

1891: https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:4M3C-H3Z

1901: https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XS6B-N8Z

1911: https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XWSP-RXZ

Marriage:

Marriages Jun 1884 Stockport 8a 5
FITTON James Thomas to JARRATT Sarah

Births:

FITTON, MAGGIE mmn JARRATT
