- Jun 30, 2008Pleae forgive my dunceness, but are u looking for frank in or around
New York or for his ancestors?
For more specific info on Frank, I did find the passenger list on
ancestry.com and there was alot if information on that list. His
arrival was to the Port of New York on 9 May 1907, his destination was
362 52nd st Brooklyn, NY (I could not distinguish the particular
person named in that section, he was born in Wilmslow, England. He
was 24 years old and single when he arrived. his profession was a butcher.
In the 1901 England census, it shows his mother, Lucy Adshead as head
of household and listed as Single, She was a confectioner worker, the
She was 21 (She is listed as Head of household, and the "Daur" was
crossed out and the "Head" printed in above it, so I think this may
have been an older sister instead of Mother as she would have been 3
years old when she birthed Frank and even less than that as he had 1
more older sister, Lizzie who is listed as 20 years old). It also
shows 2 younger siblings. Please let me know if you would like all of
the information that I found in the 1901 census.
I was unable to find him in 1891 England census.
I looked in the US census for 1910, 1920 & 1930, They all show Frank,
but both the birth dates and the place of births were incorrect (about
10 years off).
But as you do have the date of his arrival and know where he was
headed at that time, you should be able to find him in the City
Directories, or if u an decipher the name of the person he was to be
residing with at the time of his arrival, then you will have another
name to research, even if it is only periphery research, perhaps
through that name you will find Frank or someone who knows/knew/heard
