I am trying to find out more about some ancestors of mine whom I believe moved to the US for a few years back in the 1850's and 60's. I know they were in America as two or three of their children were born there, and I have a copy of a census from Savannah, Wayne Co., New York that might be the parents, but I want more :) !!!
Here is what I have, and I hope someone can fill in a few blanks for me.
Edwin COX b. about 1832 Dorset, England. Married Mary Ann KNIGHT in 1855 in Somerset, England. She was born about 1832 in Somerset. They had three children, Mary in 1856, Rosetta in 1857, and Emily Eliza in 1859, in the US (according to the London 1881 census). By 1862 they were in Somerset, England again, for the birth of another child, and by 1865 were in London for their next childs birth.
Someone sent me a copy of a census for 1860 from Savannah, Wayne Co., with Edwin and Mary Ann Cox, almost the right ages (suggest born in 1835 as opposed to 1832), and born in England. What I would like to find is their childrens record of birth or census returns. Perhaps this census is not them, or perhaps their children were elsewhere, I dont know. Does anyone has access to the census and can try and find their children, or perhaps Edwin and Mary Ann elsewhere with their kids? Or can someone find the childrens birth records? Perhaps someone can help me with why they might have been in Savannah - what kind of town / city is it (or was it then more like)? Why would they have come back to the UK? Flood? Drought? He was a labourer and she was a housekeeper.
I have a record of Rosetta Coxs marriage to a Harry HART, and their entry in the 1891 census for Lambeth, Surrey (London). It has Rosetta as being born in Boston. Can anyone help me find more details here? The family could have been in Boston in 1857, then moved to Savannah by 1860.
