Hi
I was wondering if anyone can help me. I am looking for Samuel Whiley b 1832 Friskney Lincolnshire. I believe that he emigrated to the USA in the 1850's with his family (Father Samuel, mother Ann, sisters Eliza and Mary Ann). I know that the family lived in New York for awhile before moving to Michigan. I think he might have died in 1873 but I'm not sure. The person who gave me that date has died and didn't give me any other information. I would be very greatful if anyone can shed any light for me

Regards
Fiona

Hi Fiona,

The 1860 U.S. census has no entries for a Samuel Whiley.

There are however:
