George Wesley Austin
« on: Monday 12 November 18 17:38 GMT (UK) »
I am trying to trace the life of a George Wesley Austin b circa 1891 Wednesbury Staffs
Father:  Edwin Austin 1861-1930 Wednesbury
Mother :  Maria Williamson 1896        "
Siblings :  Marie Christine Austin 1895 "
                Lincoln Edwin Austin   1899  Staffs
I have him in the 1901 with family and 1911 as a visitor to the Hopkins family and is registered as a student at Birmingham University
I can find records as a passenger to New York, occupation metallurgist but not sure of his residence after this  I'd like to find a marriage, if there was one and any subsequent children and when he died
Any help would be appreciated

He travelled 27th December 1919 from Scotland  I'm pretty sure this is him as it states his father's name and where they lived

Thanks  The birth dates have thrown me a bit as they don't tie up. 
George Wesley born 1st March 1890 died in 1975 in Cambridge and the other birth record states clearly 3rd Jan 1891  Could there have been 2 George's?
