Emigration to the U.S
« on: Saturday 25 April 20 15:58 BST (UK) »
I have an ancestor Samuel Dixon b. 1814 in Corby, Northants. I'm looking for his whereabouts after 1853. I have him in the 1841 census living with the Bradshaw family (in laws) and marrying Lydia Henson then in the 1851 census living with his wife in Corby. I have also found a passenger list which could be for Lydia Dixon and Samuel Dixon arriving on the Ellen Maria into NEW Orleans on the 7/3/1853 from Liverpool but cannot find anything further. Where can I look for any naturalization records?

Thanks in advance,

AS

The passenger list seem to indicate they were going to Salt Lake but then it was "ditto" for everyone included in the passenger list.
Really you do need to know where they might have settled. Its quite possible that if you do find a naturalization record it will not give you very much detail.

That would be a journey of about 1700 miles initially by Riverboat up the Mississipi then by covered wagon to Salt Lake City. A journey fraught with danger.

Lots of Dixons in Salt Lake City but cannot find Samuel or Lydia

The 'Lady Buliver' passenger list has them on it

Between 1840 and 1854, New Orleans was the major port of arrival for Latter-day Saint immigrant ships. Between 1855 and 1890, most of the ships arrived in New York, Philadelphia, or Boston. Suggestions for help in locating your immigrant ancestor can be found under Latter-day Saint Emigration
