    We have not been able to find anything on them after they came to U.S. Not sure if they went back to England.

    Ron,
    You need to give us a little more background, such as when they went to the US.
    Is this their marriage - William Onions with a Harriet Thomas on the same page, June quarter 1841 Wolverhampton registration district?
    Have you searched for them on any UK census?
    If you've nothing more on them after they went to the US, how do you know their death dates?
    In fact, how can you get back to them?

    According to Family tree connections on Ancestry they both lived and died in America but them some of the trees on there have some big mistakes in them. Question ?? How can a mother have 2 children born in the same year one in England and one in Scotland. so be very cautious when or if you look at them is all I can say.

    One of my Staffordshire 2x Great Aunts married a William ONIONS. The family have been 'claimed' by numerous American Family Tree compilers with William having children in the USA & Staffordshire at the same time. Emails to tree owners have elicited no more than 'I will look at it' so be VERY wary of ONIONS family trees with Staffordshire links. (PS My William, born 1860, is the son of Enoch born 1824 Wolverhampton & Druscilla (nee HUSSLEBURY).

    Yes I agree they seem to be taking information from each others family trees. One tree had them living in America but also on all English Census. LOL

    I have a look but never take anyone else's research, check it out for your self. Lots of info on Ancestry, Find my Past and Family Search.
