Do you have anything else, approximate age, who might she be with, who did she leave behind, records of sailings, area/state she might have been living.
There are a few possibles if can just narrow it down a bit.

Sorry I can't help a bit more,Mary would be over fifty born abt 1847, she would be a widow,thats about it. Robert

Do you think she was widowed in England or America and do you have her on any English censuses.

Mary married Edward Hewson 1870 West Bromwich,Edward (d)1889 West Brom,on census 51,61 & 71 with son Edward J, I think thats about it. Robert.

Nothing is jumping out at me, can I ask why you think she may have travelled to America?

Desperation! Although Edward died 1889,I lost them after 1871 census ?? plus I had a hint spring up.for U S census. Robert.

Desperation sometimes equals results I found one of mine in New Jersey.
Do you have the references for the English census entries, I'll get acquainted with Mary and see if I can help. :)

Loose my net connection when the Grandson goes to bed and switches off his computer,then work all day,back on the lap-top in the evening so sorry no contact since last night.Hard to say about the census finds no concrete links (we have to feel convinced don't we ) feel sure to 1871. Robert.
