  • Notes 
    • JSH notes: He appears as "infant" on the ships roster in 1854 indicating he was born either at sea or in England. In the 1900 Census he is listed as born Pennsylvania Nov 1853.  His death certificate says he and his parents were born in Pennsylvania which is highly unlikely given all the evidence we have otherwise saying all were born in England.  The errors are explainable as he died a widower at age 82, and the informant on the certificate was not a relative.
