    Default Looking for emigration of Henry Collamore

    Iím looking for Emigration records (not naturalisation records) for Henry Collamore.

    https://www.familysearch.org/tree/person/about/LJGH-9N7

    (Familysearch is a non-profit - can I post links?)

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Sorry,can't help with emigration records but thought I should mention that you shouldn't believe everything on FamilySearch family tree records. Anyone can - and does - get at them and muddle them. I tried sorting the errors people made with my family but had to give up

    Here is the data I have ...

    Birth: abt 1811 to 1816, Morthoe, Devon, England.

    1851 UK Census has his address as Georgeham, Devon and he is living with the following family members:

    Henry Collamore 40 Head (self)
    Susan Collamore 38 Wife
    Elizabeth Collamore 11 Daughter
    William Collamore 9 Son
    Edward Collamore 5 Son

    1851 Birth of son, George Collamore in Georgeham, Devon

    *** Between 1851 and 1856 :: Travel to USA ***

    1856 Birth of son Albert Colmore in Illinois, US.

    1860 US has his address as Dement, Ogle, Illinois and he is living with the following family members:

    Henry Colmore 48 (self)
    Susan Colmore 47
    Wm Colmore 18
    George Colmore 9
    Albert Colmore 4

    1870 US has his address as Malta, Dekalb, Illinois and he is living with the following family members:

    Henry Collamore 50 (self, birthplace England)
    Susan Collamore 55 (birthplace England)
    Henry A Collamore 14 (birthplace Illinois, I think this is Henry Albert)

    1875 Henry Albert marries in Iowa.

    1886 Death of Wife, Susan.

    *** Between 1870 and 1901 :: Travel to UK, probably alone ***

    Following your link through to the 1860 US census Henry Colinore, his wife Susan and three sons eldest 18 (can't read his name), George 9 born England, Albert? 4 born Illinois are living in Dement, Ogle, Illinois.
    So they emigrated approximately between 1850/51 and 1856.
    There is a created field done January 24, 2023 giving them as US citizens. Do you know when this occurred? Found it - 1869.
    They are on the 1851 UK census so looking for immigration after that and before the US 1860. Did henry return to England after the death of his wife before 1881 but after 1870?
    UK census 1851
    Henry Collamore 40 Head
    Susan Collamore 38 Wife
    Elizabeth Collamore 11 daughter
    William Collamore 9 son
    Edward Collamore 5 son
    Susan Edwards 17 visitor
    John Edwards 22 lodger

    Did all this then you beat me to it
    I asked did Henry return to the UK because there is a Henry Collamore in 1881 UK census with a wife Ann, retired farmer. Is he another Henry?
    Susan's headstone only has her death as March, the year evidently worn away.

    I can't see an 1880 US census for Henry as yet. Do you have it.

    Hi Christanel, thanks for the looking into this.

    I haven't started working on verifying the 1881 census yet.

    I have a death certificate that I'm trying to verify. I've uploaded it here: https://www.familysearch.org/photos/artifacts/180337534

    I can't make out the nephew's name - J F Doelc?

    Yes! I had a look at the certificate and that was my first thought too. The initials a bit more difficult but could be S J. Not confident on that though.
