Hi Sandra
Thanks for the details; I wonder if they had any children born in America and if there were obituaries for William and Rachel?

William died 26 April 1908, Retreat, Pennsylvania, U.S. 

In case it helps, William died in Newport, Luzerne Co., Pennsylvania.  The death certificate mentions Almshouse Retreat, which appears to be this place - http://www.asylumprojects.org/index.php/Retreat_State_Hospital
