Additional information has been uncovered since my previous posting. My gr-grandfather Bottomley apparently died between l879, when a daughter was born to him, and l88l, when the census was taken, in which his widow, Mary, is listed as head of the house. She was born in Ireland, and there is some evidence that her maiden name was Hayman and her mother's maiden name was Pyper. My grandfather Thomas James Bottomley was born in l873, according to the l88l census. Any help in identifying my gr-grandfather Bottomley and his branch of the Bottomley family will be much appreciated.Thank you.Jim Pearsall, East Millstone, NJ USA.
