Hello I am looking for the immigration records of Chas Stewart, his wife Eliza Houston (Huston) and their daughter Mary Stewart.  I believe they immigrated in the 1860s. from Ireland to  Philadelphia.

In the   "Pennsylvania and New Jersey, Church and Town Records, 1669-2013" records Mary's marriage to William H Truman, dentist, 18/3/1882, they were methodist. Also records Mary's death, DEATH AGE 78, DOB 14/09/1844, DEATH PLACE Philadelphia  Pennsylvania USA, Chas Stewart, father. Elizabeth Huston, mother, William H Trueman, spouse. They had 3 children born in the 1880s.    In the 1900 United States Federal Census, records Mary immigrated in 1866. 

I can not locate any records for Charles of his wife Eliza in Pennsylvania.  Further information I have gleamed from other people's  Family trees are - Charles Stewart  18141875, BIRTH ABOUT 1814   Omagh, County Tyrone, Ireland, DEATH 5 SEP 1875 Rolfe, Pocahontas, Iowa, USA and Eliza Houston BIRTH ABT 1812 Tyrone, Northern Ireland, DEATH ABOUT 1900 Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. 
If anyone can give me any information on Charles or Eliza in Philadlelphia, especially the early immigration records would be marvellous. 
Thankyou in advance
Stewart, Reilly, Montgomery, Cheshire, Lyttle, Rankin, Apthorpe, Hart, Anderson,  Gourley

and again in 1895 - Bluffton, Winneshiek, Iowa.

Eliza Stewart   83

Thank you so much Sandra for all the information which I will add to my tree.  Its really great when things come together.  I had a look at Charles Stewart  65 born Ireland. clergyman with his spouse Eliza,  If this is Charles, he would have been a Methodist clergyman.   Charles and Eliza family were  very well educated, one of the boys  John Huston Stewart, was headmaster of a Wesleyan School in Dublin, he went to London University in 1885, not many people in Ireland in the 1800s attended university's.  The obituaries make very interesting reading.    Thank you again  Angela
