Here is everything I have on our family.  Actually I have more from the Isle of Man before they came over and I’ll send you that link when I finish it up.  Please look through everything and comment as liberally as possible.  I’d like your input on anything and everything. 







A monumental inscription in the Braddan Old Yard in the Isle of Man.  This is our link to the island.  Charles had one sister that remained while he and their father went to America.  Her name was Catherine.  She married Robert Roberts.  Notice how many of his siblings died as children.  Rough life.
