The Atmores came from Foulden, CoNorfolk, Eng. Matthew A. (1797or8 - 1878) married Maria Pond( 1801 - 1883) and had 13 children two of which died in England. The family left for the USA on March 13th, 1843, aboard the sailing ship "The Mediator". Maria Atmore (the daughter)was born in 1832. I have proof that she and her first husband (plus sisters Mary and Eliz -- as well as brother John) moved to Saunders Co,NE. Various Lees and Atmores also joined the gold rush to California. Look forward to swapping info with you via e - mail.
