It looks like they all arrived in 1873 in US. (Year of immigration given in 1910 census for Mary Ann Stokes) Such amazing details. Thanks again Sandra ShaunJ etc!

Some of the best threads are very often "team efforts" in piecing those "brick walls and jig-saws" together.  Totally agree that its great the sense of humour and rapport that we all have with each other.  ;) ;)
