Emigration to USA via Canada
« on: Wednesday 13 November 19 17:44 GMT (UK) »
Dear All,
I would like to find out the ship, route and date detail that took one of my deceased relatives to Canada and then the USA. It would be wonderful if you can solve this puzzle for me.

Herbert Grimwood was born in Jan 1867 in Yoxford Suffolk England (parents Joseph and Emily). Herbert died in Polk City Florida in Sept 1959.

I can find him on the 1881 census living at home in Suffolk and then he appears on a USA census in 1900 in Pennsylvania. I am sure he went via Toronto and spent some time there.

Herbert was a Preacher of the Gospel.

Would love to know his passage details and also when and how he moved into the USA

many thanks
Markham, Gurney, Grimwood

Obit for second wife Helen Kohler (not what your asking but may be of interest) - Democrat and Chronicle Rochester, New York
26 Jun 1956, Tue  -  Page 20

Marriage - Herbert Grimwood - Wyandotte, Wayne, Michigan - 5 June 1933 - Helen Louise Kohler.

1900 census says he immigrated 1887. PA - He had applied for naturalization. Census information is only as good as the informants knowledge.

Thanks Sandra.

I am truly stuck on when and how he travelled to Canada (which Ship etc). Would like to know similarly when he went into USA. I presume via Buffalo but I don't know that - its just guessing on my part.

 You certainly have the correct Herbert and thank you. Both of your posts have the right guy. Spot on.

Hi Sandra
You are a marvel uncovering this. Thank you.
 Well we have a boat, it might be going the wrong way but it's huge progress.
I really appreciate what you are doing
