Does anyone have Thomas & Barbara Bottoms in their famly tree? They emigrated to Pennsylvania, USA from County Durham, England aboard the SS Louisianna in April 1869. They had about 9 children – all but the first (Thomas) born in Luzerne, PA.
Thomas (senior) was born about 1838 and Barbara (Hutchinson) about 1837.
I have information about their ancestors.

Have you tried looking on rootsweb for them or even putting up the information you have on the Bottoms family on there?

Can't thank you enough for all your help. The census' were invaluable and answered a long standing query regarding Thos (Snr)'s sister Isabella - she became Isabella Bottoms Williams and is on the 1920 census.
Thank you again
