Going to New York. John gave his father as Samuel Swinnerton in Boston.

There where a number of crossings around that time Annie (Hannah) went back and died Dec 1916 Bury. So the original crossing would confirm 1898.
Wonder what the Boston connection is for Samuel.

Yes Sandra and all down to you, Many thanks for your help.
I doubt if the last marriage is for the Samuel that I am looking for because of the age of him in 1915 would put him in his late sixties.

and the marriage index we referred to earlier 8 July 1915 - Samuel W Swinnerton and Martha Herrman

Sandra,
So we now have two Samuel W Swinnerton marriages.
That's even more confusing >:(
I will need to find which families they are from.
Even if one was the correct one Samuel would be a bit old for marriage.
But I have found older marriages in the past.

One appears to be a marriage license that was issued on the 7 th July 1915 and the other a marriage which took place on the 8th July 1916 -  ???

So do you think it would be safe to assume that they are for the same marriage?
